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.
Organized and run by the Parent Association, Grizzly Gear offers a wide selection of gently used uniforms and spirit wear. Hours are as posted or by appointment. Grizzly Gear is cash and check only. All proceeds benefit the Parent Association. Donation boxes are in each division. Grizzly Gear is located in the basement of Meadowood.
