Dress Code Reminders

Since we are no longer experiencing cold weather, it is a good time for Dress Code Reminders.


Students may only wear jackets and/or sweatshirts in white, navy blue, or black. If a student is wearing a different jacket, other than described above, they will be asked to remove it.

Sneakers are required for safety reasons.


Pants: Navy blue, black, or khaki uniform pants

Shorts: Navy blue, black, or khaki uniform shorts

Leggings may only be worn under uniform skirts. They must be solid color.


Students may wear jeans with no holes and a spirit shirt.

The length of all shorts, skorts, and jumpers MUST be longer or at the point where the end of the fingertips reaches on the leg while the child’s arms are extended straight at their side.

Students in violation of the dress code will be sent to the clinic to receive a change of clothes. These must be washed and returned in a timely manner. Students will receive three written notices to correct dress code violations. Students will receive a consequence for each violation thereafter.

Please Ask Your Child to Check Lost and Found in the Breezeway! We Have Lots of Lost Items!
