The School Leadership Team is happy to announce the new school uniform policy for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. Our students will have more options to choose from, and we encourage them to wear their PS/IS 48 uniform and be proud to show their school spirit.
The New PS/IS 48 Spirit Wear Shop, offered in partnership with Wicked Stitches, will offer our new line of school spirit apparel. All orders placed online by August 8th can be picked up in school on September 6th, in time for the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. Parents will also have the option to pick up their orders in store, or have them shipped home for a $10 fee. Additionally, starting September 2017 and moving forward, orders placed online before the 15th of each month can be picked up in school at the end of said month. http://wickedstitchesgifts.com/ps-is-48/
Wicked Stitches is conveniently located at 840 Castleton Avenue, Staten Island NY 10310.
The PS/IS 48 Phys. Ed. website offered in partnership with HN Outfitters will continue to be used to order our gym uniform. Students should wear gym uniforms or sweatpants on days that their class is scheduled for Physical Education. The PTA is currently working with our Brooklyn partners to lower the shipping costs for the upcoming school year. https://hnoutfitters.com/store/psis48/
The regular school uniform will still consist of white, light blue, or dark blue shirt; with dark blue or beige/khaki bottoms (pants/skirts/shorts/skorts/jumper, etc.) Parents may select any brand/style of clothing that they prefer. Please be sure to label all articles of clothing with your child’s name & class. As always, there is no specified attire for shoes.
The school attire, any of the three options listed above, should be worn Monday-Thursday; Fridays will remain dress down or School Spirit days. Those who wish to opt-out of the school-wide uniform policy, will need to fill out a uniform exemption request indicating reason(s) for the opt-out. Forms can be requested at the school’s main office.
