School Uniform Supplier:
The official uniform supplier is Flynn and O’Hara, located in Exton (next to Home Goods/Marshalls) 610-594-1970.

PUT YOUR CHILD’S NAME ON ALL REMOVABLE CLOTHING ITEMS TO AVOID THEM BEING LOST! A lost and found bin is located in the school. Please check frequently for missing items.

School parents also run a uniform exchange where you can pick up gently used school uniforms for free. This occurs in August, and occasionally throughout the school year.

Shoes
Uniform shoes must have red, non-scuff soles, and are available at Flocco’s Discount Shoes in Conshohocken. Flocco’s also comes to school in August.

Tips:

  • Red-soled Sketcher bucks wear better than the Bass bucks, but are not available in sizes larger than Youth 7.
  • Famous Footwear runs a sale each summer of “buy one get one 1/2 off” and they carry both kinds of shoes.
  • Flynn & O’Hara now sells the bucks as well.

*Summer Uniform:
An OPTIONAL summer uniform is allowed during the early fall and late spring. For now, parents can plan on the students being able to wear them in May, June and September. These dates could be extended into early October or late April, depending upon the weather. However, if the temperatures rise into the 90’s, students are often allowed to wear their gym uniforms. The Principal will determine official dates and will communicate to families in a timely manner.

Boys’ Summer Uniform:

  • Khaki Walking Shorts
  • Hunter Short Sleeve Polo shirt with SSPP logo
  • School shoes
  • White or black ankle sport socks
  • Leather belt

Girls’ Summer Uniform:

Art smock
Tip: When sending in an Art smock make sure it is an extra-long shirt that covers most of the uniform. The plastic smocks or smaller shirts do not cover much. Art mishaps can ruin uniforms.
