A standardized dress code using traditional school uniforms fosters an atmosphere of school identity and pride, enhances neatness and decreases competition. Our uniform policy applies to all students in grades K through 8. Parents upon enrolling their child agree to support the rules and policies stated below.
Non-Uniform Days: This is a privilege. Students should enjoy these days but they should always dress appropriately for school. Unless it is designated as a “Dress-Up Day”, students may wear:
- Jeans, shorts (1st day of school – Nov. 1; Apr. 1 – end of school year), skirts/culottes, dresses or slacks. Plain bottoms only.
- Leggings or jeggings are ONLY allowed if worn with a mid-thigh or longer top.
- Inappropriate clothes include: running and short-shorts, cut-offs, tank tops, mini skirts, pajama style/shorts or pants, torn clothing or clothing with any inappropriate graphics or words.
