Dress Code

Uniforms

For both boys and girls, uniforms must include red polo knit shirts, with khaki bottoms, for KinderPrep-5th grade. Jr. High students (6-8 grade) can wear any color knit polo shirt, with khaki or navy bottoms. No emblems or logos should be visible on the polo shirts.

Students must wear socks or tights with their shoes every day. Since all classes attend recess and PE, athletic shoes are best but other styles are acceptable.

Uniforms can be found at Old Navy, JCPenney Uniforms, Lands End, or French Toast – although any brand that meets the dress code is acceptable.

Hats, beanies, visors, and hoods or other head coverings are not permitted during school hours inside the building unless specified as a specific day.

* The school’s definition of tightness: The student must be able to gather fabric in their upper hand in the upper thigh area just below the hips. If the student can only pinch fabric in this area with their fingers, then the pants are too tight.

The administration reserves the right to make final decisions in regard to questionable dress or appearance.
