2022-2023 Uniform Policy Clarification

1. In the policy it states students may wear joggers. This does not mean athletic joggers or sweatpants. We specifically state no athletic joggers. We are talking about the kind of joggers that are made of uniform pant material and have elastic at the ankles.


2. All students should have a backpack. Only 7/8 will be permitted to carry their backpack around.
