 School Uniforms

Our students always look their best when they come to school and we know parents take pride in dressing students in the required uniform.  Until further notice, we will not require school uniforms.  We understand that during the pandemic, it has been difficult for families to acquire school uniforms.  We will continue to look for solutions to support our families in this effort. 

Students who have been registered for in-person learning should come to school, whether they have a uniform or not.  Please refer to the Uniform/Dresscode section of the Student Code of Conduct (pages 22-23) here for details.  Examples of acceptable options include spirit wear, unripped jeans and other bottoms, shirts without offensive images or language, and tennis shoes.
