Frustrated (school uniform) update: spoke to someone at the school

and they told me that they were sorry that at the last minute they changed the colors and they are happy to know that I am one of the parents that made the effort to buy the uniform. I next called kmart and the woman I spoke to just happens to have a child in the same school as my girls and is going through the same thing.. I couldn't help but laugh. she also had bought the blue bottom and white tops. she told me to stop by and I can change the clothes. that they will find my receipt. thank you very much ladies for the advice.

My 3 girls will be going to the same school this year, 2 of them will be in 2nd grade and the other one will be in 5th. from 2nd - 4th grade they wear navy blue bottoms and white tops and the 5th graders will wear kaki pants and navy blue tops. I waited for the official letter letting me know about the colors. I bought all their school clothes after I got the letterĀ  which was Aug 9. today I get a phone call stating that the new uniform colors are kaki pants and navy blue tops. WTH. what do I do now? this is really frustrating. school starts on wednesday.

Either exchange them or me, i would bring in the FIRSt letter to the school an tell them they either pay for the proper colors or they leave your kids alone and let them wear what u bought since that was what the first letter they sent out said.

no, 7 day exchange policy

Call the store and explain your situation, I have return things that were not supposed to be returned before. I just talked to the supervisor and explained

So whole school will be in one uniform now?   Depending on the store you can take them back and exchange for a new color.  Or take them to a consignment store which sells  school uniforms.

I would let the school know what you purchased and that you can't return them and see what they say,  If you know a consignment shop in your area you might be able to sell them there if the school is not cooperative.

I thought about doing that, I doubt they will pay for the proper colors.

Then the school needs to let this year fly and fix their stuff for next year so the letter sent out is correct, but i would def go in with the 1st letter and talk to the school. Those things are WAY to expensive to just go buy more

yes they will be all in the same colors. I recieved the official letter aug 9 that from 2nd to 4th grade will be navy bottoms and white tops. 20 min ago I get the call about everyone in same colors. I don't have the reciept so I don't know what to do. If they are not allowed to wear what I got them then I will definitely take them to a consignment store. tyvm for the advice

I'd call the school and confirm that change as they sent a letter stateing one thing and a call saying another.

We do uniforms too they actually posted the change on the website. Maybe you could check the schools website too.
