Neckties, blazers, hats and bags should be left at home and parents should not chat at the gates as schools are preparing to unlock their doors tomorrow.
The measures, including asking students to wear a PE set so as not to use the changing rooms, are designed to ensure safe reopening, with children at no risk of coronavirus infection.
Independent Schools Association executive director Neil Roskilly said the changes need to be made because these uniform pieces are less washed than shirts, pants, and skirts.
Despite the wasted time, a Tes survey suggests that a fifth of teachers will stay home tomorrow due to health issues, age, and family members.
Union leader Mary Bousted has already poured cold water on proposals to cancel the summer vacation and said the workers were working flat out to offer online classes during the closure.
Minister of Education Gavin Williamson tried to reassure parents that "strict security measures" had been put in place before the reopening, and said that this must be done because of the lack of learning on children's progress.
Boris Johnson asked the schools to return the first and sixth grade reception to their desks on Monday to have 10th and 12th grade back at their desks by June 15th.
There is also a goal to bring all elementary school students back to school by the end of June. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have announced that their schools will not be reopening this month.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph about the measurements, Mr. Roskilly said: “The difficulty is that parents love to gather and chat outside the school gates. They have their daily conversation.
"These old habits are hard to break."
And the director of the Independent Association of Prep Schools, Christopher King, said some schools even ask children to wear physical education equipment for class.
"Many are lucky enough to have a large location with playing fields, and they want to add physical activity to their daily schedule," he said.
"They ask the students to get ready for school because changing rooms are problematic."
Schools could also ask students to bring packed lunches instead of relying on the canteen as this poses a risk.
Many teachers are unlikely to return on Monday, the Sunday Times reports, because of health problems such as asthma and diabetes, living with a vulnerable family member, or at increased risk due to their age.
It is because of this that there is still controversy as to whether the opening on Monday is too early. 11 of the 20 worst performing councils urged school leaders to lock the gates on June 1st.
These schools are located in Halton, Doncaster, North Yokrshire, Portsmouth, Cornwall, Norfolk, Peterborough, Lincolnshire, Rotherham, Somerset and Worcestershire.
Primary schools across England will return first, sixth and sixth grade students on Monday. However, a fifth of the teachers are not expected to return

What will a reopened school look like tomorrow?
Schools are expected to take the following actions when they reopen on Monday, the first and sixth years.
Parents should have learned from their children's schools what measures they will take.
– Ties, blazers, hats and bags can be banned on the school premises because they are rarely washed
– Students could be asked to wear a PE set to avoid changing rooms
– Packed lunches may be required as school canteens are not expected to start serving food
Gavin Williamson wrote in The Sun, trying to reassure parents that it was safe this morning. He said that "strict security measures" had been taken to protect children.
He also warned that children's education cannot suffer at this time, since Covid-19 is expected to continue for many months.
"I know that parents went the extra mile to make sure their kids didn't miss anything during the ban," he said.
“Unfortunately, not all children have this support.
"For those who have had a particularly difficult start in life, the price of not being in training will be high."
At least 39 percent of parents are expected to ignore the opening and leave their children at home.
An ORB International poll of 2,085 mothers found the shocking figure as many will wait for schools to open two weeks before sending their children back.
The UK’s largest teacher’s union, the NEW, has told its members not to look at plans to reopen.
And the National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers has threatened councils with legal action if teachers who refuse to work are punished.
Mary Bousted said schools shouldn't try to cancel summer vacation despite the lack of class time. She said they could offer voluntary activities instead

Mary Bousted told Sky News this morning that the school should remain closed until June 15, as the additional two weeks could cut the infection rate in half.
"We think it's safer, we think it's rational and we think it's responsible," she said.
When asked whether schools should be opened during the summer holidays to regain lost time, she said they should close at the end of July as usual because teachers had to work so hard.
"Summer vacations shouldn't be canceled because teachers have worked tirelessly to provide education at home," she said.
& # 39; There should be clubs and activities on a voluntary basis. Many of these children have to socialize again, get involved again and deal with the love of learning again. & # 39;
Bousted threw a blow at the government, adding that school guidelines have been changed 41 times since their release on May 12, making it difficult for schools to implement reopening plans in time.
Gavin Williamson: Why schools have to reopen on Monday
The Minister of Education has requested that schools be reopened on June 1st for reception, first and sixth grade students.
When he wrote in the sun on Sunday, he said it was important to have the children back at their desks so that their education would not suffer.
"Every day that (underprivileged students) spend outside of school is a different one that widens the gap between them and the rest of the class," he said.
“I know very well that parents went the extra mile to make sure their kids didn't miss anything during the closure.
"But unfortunately not all children will have received this support."
