The Beth Tfiloh Uniform Makeover

What You Need to Know for 2021-22

View our new Spiritwear store details here

Our Beth Tfiloh community brand is getting a makeover – a new look for a new era as we kick off our Beth Tfiloh community’s centennial year. This makeover includes our school uniform as well, with a contemporary, fresh new look that reflects our school community’s culture of respect, consistency and pride.

New Designs and Colors
Our new line of polo shirts and dress code-approved tops will be available in cobalt/royal blue, light blue/blue, heather gray, and white (available colors vary depending on the particular item). We have discontinued the following shirt colors: pink, purple, yellow, navy blue and black.

New Spirit Wear Store Coming this Summer
In addition to the new uniform shirt design and colors, we are launching an all-new Spiritwear line, with many dress code-approved tops in new designs and colors. The new line will be available in an online store launching this summer, and new items will be added throughout the year. See details here

Dress Code Transition Year
Please note that next year will be a uniform transition year. Your children will still be allowed to wear older uniform tops and dresses for the 2021-22 school year. Beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, only the new uniform styles and colors will be allowed.

Please note that gym uniforms are not required this year.

Dress Code Guidelines Compliance 
A new uniform look means taking another look at our dress code guidelines. Please note that all skirts and jumpers available from our two preferred vendors (Lands’ End and Tommy Hilfiger) will only be available in dress code-approved lengths to the knee. You are still able to purchase uniform pants and skirts elsewhere but please be mindful that the skirts should go to your child’s knee.

Please help us present ourselves in the way that demonstrates our values. We know we have discussed this and brought it to your attention before, but admittedly this past year we did not enforce it (for obvious reasons!). Please help your children represent our standards by supporting our stated dress code policies.  

Recycling Old Uniforms
We are exploring opportunities to recycle your retired uniforms that will help our community be environmentally responsible and raise funds for our school community – two mitzvot in one! I will share more details about this as soon as they are available.
