Dress Code Guidelines for Grades K-8

The purpose of the TLS dress code is to promote a sense of community among our students as
well as a sense of pride in oneself and in our school. These guidelines are uniform for
Kindergarten through Grade Eight. Items listed in the dress code may be purchased
through a number of different retailers, including Lands’ End, and the TLS PTO Bookstore
in the main office. If you choose to purchase from Lands’ End, please use the school code
9000-5809-0. The TLS PTO Bookstore has a variety of items on-hand and others that may
be ordered. As the weather gets warmer, it is important to remember the guidelines for
shorts and TAG Days. These guidelines can be found in your student handbook. Boldfaced
items relate to warmer temperatures.

Building Access for Extended Care (Key Fobs)

Key fobs allow TLS to manage our security by providing controlled access to the building.

To access extended care between 6:30-7:45 am and 3:15-6:00 pm, parents will need to use their assigned key fob. Key fobs allow parents access to parking lot door during extended care hours.
