The dress codes for the upcoming school year can be found here.
New Uniform Orders
PLEASE READ: It is very important that you order your student's uniforms during the month of August. Our uniform supplier has a minimum for each order and although CAWNY will take your orders throughout the year, they will not be filled until that minimum is reached, which could be several months. When ordering, please allow three (3) weeks for delivery.
Polo Shirts: For your convenience, CAWNY polo shirt samples of all sizes are at the school for your review. It is always a good idea to see the sizes in person to be sure you have the most proper fit before your order from the CAWNY Uniform Store.*
Hoodies: The dress code with regard to pants and shirts varies from Elementary to Middle School to High School. However, ALL STUDENTS must wear CAWNY-issued hoodies. During the Fall and Winter months, only CAWNY-issued hoodies are allowed.
Once again, our uniform provider requires a minimum amount for orders. During the school months, for obvious reasons, the orders are much smaller, causing us to have to wait until the minimum is reached. Please order your student's hoodie now for the upcoming year.
* Elementary and Middle School parents have two options when it comes to purchasing dress code shirts:
#1 - they can purchase pre-printed dark green or white polos through our CAWNY Uniform Store; OR
#2 - they can purchase solid color shirts of their choice and have the logo screen printed onto them at one of the school-approved screen printing locations. Remember, shirts must be unworn and unwashed before screen printing.

"Used uniforms" does not mean just items ordered from our uniform provider. There are also piles of skirts, pants, etc., anything a student might need for CAWNY.
Alternative Uniform Provider for Skirts and Pants, specifically
There has been some confusion about the types of pants and skirts that were acceptable as part of the school uniform. Some students had to be told that they had bought the incorrect style/type of pants or skirts and could not wear them. Therefore, we came up with a crystal clear solution.
If you (or your child/teen) are not sure exactly what is acceptable and what is not, CAWNY has partnered with Flynn & O’Hara of Williamsville to supply your pants and skirt needs. Please understand, we are not requiring that you purchase these items at Flynn & O’Hara. If you cannot find acceptable pants and skirts in your favorite store or online, you can visit Flynn & O’Hara’s location in Williamsville. Just give them our school’s name and they will help you.
There will be no tolerance for students dressing out of dress code. So, please, review the dress code, or remind your teen to do so before school begins. You can visit Flynn & O’Hara’s website here.
