The Garrison Forest uniform tradition is intended to enhance school spirit and pride and allow students to focus on learning. The spirit in which a uniform is worn reflects the standards of the community.
The uniform standards differ with each division (detailed below). Students who are required to be in uniform (Kindergarten-12th Grade) are expected to wear clothes that are clean, neat and in good repair. Students may not wear sweatshirts—including the GFS sweatshirt—or other clothing that has been cut or ripped. Students are not permitted to color, deface, or alter any part of the uniform.
Uniforms may be purchased at Flynn & O’Hara or through the GFS Parent Association’s Grizzly Gear. Additional uniform items are available at the School Store.
Located in the basement of Meadowood, Grizzly Gear offers a selection of gently used uniforms and spirit wear for purchase. Cash, check, and credit card accepted. All proceeds benefit the Parent Association. For the 2021-22 school year, Grizzly Gear will be open during the following times:
