Explorers Dress for Success

The Discover U uniform shirt or sweater and khaki colored bottoms completes our dress code Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, students are allowed to wear denim bottoms with their uniform shirt. This is optional, of course. If the student is not wearing denim bottoms with their uniform shirt, then the expectation is that the student is in the school uniform.

Shirts and sweaters are for sale in the front office. Please call if you have any questions 623-974-4827.
