Uniform Policy

Students in Grades K-8 are to be in uniform throughout the school year. Kindergarten students are not required to wear uniforms on the day that they have gym, and can come to school in play clothes. Kindergarten students may wear sneakers every day. Official school uniforms may be purchased at the JC Penney School Uniform Department or the Red Door. The intent of the Uniform Code Policy is uniformity. Deviations in color and style are not acceptable. Students will be periodically and randomly checked by school faculty to: a) insure uniform policy is adhered to appropriately, b) to raise everyone's awareness of their responsibility to both student and school appearance. Students will be given reminders of the uniform policy on an individual and/or class basis depending on the circumstance calling attention to a policy violation. Parents or Guardians of the students who have repeated violations will be issued a written notification by the class teacher or principal that, if violations persist, disciplinary action will follow including possible detention for insubordination/defiance. Disciplinary action will vary and be handled on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the faculty and principal. (1. written (verbal) warning, 2. written warning, 3 detention) Communication between faculty and parents is encouraged to promote active awareness of school policy.
