Children in grades K-8 must wear uniforms. To enforce the uniform code, we need parent/guardian cooperation. It is your responsibility to make to make sure your child arrives to school daily in proper school attire. The uniform has many functions including the fostering of school pride and such practical considerations as cost serviceability. The following guildelines must be followed when purchasing school clothing. Uniforms are available at True Grits. When purchasing uniforms at other stores parents/guardians must ensure that the clothing is in accord with our uniform code. For more information please refer to the uniform code (pdf file).
Dress Code Violations
If a student does not comply with the uniform policy, the student will receive a uniform notice slip. This notice is to be signed by the parent or guardian and returned to the teacher the following school day. The teacher will call the parent /guardian in the event the notice has not been returned. The uniform notice serves as one-time warning per trimester. The second violation will result in a Conduct detention.
If the student violates the uniform code a third time during the trimester, the student will serve Conduct detention and will be sent to the school office and the parent or guardian will be called and asked to bring in the appropriate unifrom attire. One-day only extenuating circumstances: Students must submit a written note from their parent or guardian to their teacher upon entrance to their class. Students without a parent or guardian note will receive the same dress code violation protocol as described earlier in this section.
Students not in compliance with the jewelery, make-up policy, or extra outerwear, will be required to remove or wash off these items and dress dress code violation protocol will apply.
The Principal will make any final determination as to whether student is out of compliance with the uniform code.
