Uniforms

The School Uniform

 

Uniforms bring a sense of order to our school. Uniforms allow
every student to feel included regardless of his or her family’s social or economic background. The uniform policy provides a structure that respects individualism but also promotes a sense of community and togetherness.

 

 

Compliance with a uniform policy allows us to focus on the more important issue of achieving a good education and avoid discussions about who is wearing what style or color of clothes.

Dress Down Day 

 

As a fundraiser, in order to provide prizes and incentives for students throughout the year, students are invited to wear “free dress” on Fridays for $1. Students must bring $1 in order to participate.

 

Students can wear non-uniform clothing that complies with our uniform standards of modesty and appropriateness. Clothing may not be torn or frayed. Tank tops, jeggings or skinny jeans may not be worn.

 

Inappropriate dress will result in a parent or caregiver being called to bring a change of clothes for the student. Each uniform infraction will result in a “loss of Free Dress” the following Friday.
