The Trevitt Elementary dress code was established to help increase a sense of pride for learning. We want each child to reach his or her potential in an environment that is safe and free from learning distractions. We want learning to be the focus for our children. We look forward to the positive impact school uniforms will have on the academic environment and the safety of our school.

The uniform consists of:

Tops: Short or Long sleeves polo shirt in white, navy blue, yellow, black or light blue.

Bottoms: Shorts, pants, skirts, skorts, or jumper in khaki, black or navy blue.

In the event of no uniform, we will temporarily allow students to wear a solid color shirt and solid colored bottoms (NO DENIM).
