Uniform Guidelines

A neat appearance is important for a positive learning environment, effective discipline, and a good self-image.  All clothing must be in good repair with no rips, tears, or noticeable wear and should fit properly (no oversized or undersized clothing may be worn). Please mark all hats, coats, sweaters, etc. with your child’s name.
