Lanier Uniform Information and Store Hours

The Lanier Uniform and Gear Store is located in room 130 (across from the Dance Room). The current Lanier uniforms will be used for the upcoming school year(s). Come by to get your uniform shirts and Lanier gear early to avoid the end of summer rush. For more information about uniforms, including pricing and store hours, click here.

****UPDATE ON UNIFORM STOCK (as of 8/17/16)****

The LMS Uniform Store is currently out of stock in all 4 colors in Youth Extra Large (YXL) and has very limited stock of Adult Small (AS); sizes still available are YM, AM, AL, AXL.  We are placing an order tonight that should arrive in 2-3 weeks.  For those of you needing YXL, we will provide a pre-owned shirt for free (while supplies last) and offer the LMS Spirit T-shirt that can be worn on Fridays for $5.

For your convenience, we will accept preorders and prepayment for the upcoming shipment (to save you a trip back to the store).  Once they arrive, we will make sure your child can pick up the shirts in store or deliver it to them. All uniform shirts are $15 and we accept debit, credit, cash or checks.  We will have this signup available in the store tomorrow (Thursday 8/18, 10am-2pm) and again the first week of school.

We apologize to each of you affected by this shortfall and will be sure to communicate the arrival of the new shipment through the Purple Page.
