Uniform Information and Guidelines 2017-18

The goal of having a uniform is to have students dress neatly and consistently. We rely on parental support to attain these goals. Please assist us by seeing that your child is in uniform, well-groomed, neat not rumpled, no holes in the elbows and with shirttails tucked in, etc. Uniform regulations apply from the time the student leaves home until he or she arrives back home, unless otherwise excused. This means that students cannot wear other clothes to school and change at school, nor change into other clothes after school.
