For the 2018-2019 school year, we will partner with Merry Mart School Uniforms, located in Santa Clara.  Families can order items on their online site, as well as purchase in-store.  You can find guidelines for the Notre Dame school uniform here.
During PE classes, students must change into appropriate athletic clothes; students may not participate in physical education activities in their school uniform, unless directed by the teacher that they do not need to “dress out.” Appropriate clothing for PE class is as follows: 
• Bottoms: Solid black or navy blue shorts of an appropriate length; or solid black or navy blue yoga pants/leggings/sweatpants. 
• Tops: Solid black, navy blue, burgundy, gray, or white long or short-sleeved shirt; or a ND-affiliated top (i.e. I Heart ND t-shirt, class t-shirt, club shirt) 
Note to current Notre Dame families:  Current students with Land’s End uniform pieces do not need to purchase replacement pieces from Merry Mart for the next school year. Land’s End uniform items will be grandfathered into the dress code until our current study body graduates.  However, if you are donating uniform items to the used uniform closet or passing them along to another family, please consult the list below to determine which items may be donated/passed on to new students.  
Discontinued Uniform Items List
*While current Land’s End uniform items  may be worn until current students graduate, the following items are discontinued and will not be permitted as part of the uniform.  Additionally, these items will not be accepted for donation to the Used Uniform Closet at Notre Dame, and we kindly ask that you do not pass these items along to any new/incoming students
