2022-2023 Parent and Student Handbook

August 9 Update re: MS and US PE Uniforms
We are continuing to experience major disruptions to the supply chain which is affecting multiple items on the spirit store, including PE uniforms. Please be patient as we work to get all available sizes back in stock. We have a restock order that will arrive at the end of August – this should restock all PE items that are currently out of stock. Adult medium shorts are out of stock and we have not been given a restock date yet. We will continue to check with the manufacturer of those so we can get them restocked as soon as possible.

A few helpful tips:

  • If a size you need is not available, please sign up for the “back in stock*” option on the item. If you do that, you will receive an email to go online and order your desired size as soon as we receive the restock.
  • If you are able to find your size in one item but not the other, please purchase what is in stock and sign up for the back in stock on the out of stock item
  • Due to the supply chain issues, we will pause the SRDS PE uniform requirement for participation in PE classes until the week of September 19th.

(Sneakers, shorts, (or sweatpants), tee-shirts (short or long sleeve) will be required for PE classes until Sept 19.  After Sept 19th, SRDS PE Gear will be required.
