Additional Notes
1. Boys and girls may not wear jeans or denim unless special permission is given by the principal for a spirit day.
2. On picture days, students may wear a nice outfit or the uniform for their picture.
3. Make sure your students wear a jacket or coat on cool and windy days. The children go outside for recess and often times they complain because they are cold yet they do not have their jacket or coat.
4. Use a permanent ink marker to write a child’s name on a tag inside their coats, jackets and all sweatshirts. If you get uniforms from the Thrift Store or a relative; please make sure the “old” name is marked out and your child’s name is written in. These are expensive items. If there is no name, then the items are left in lost and found. In June, the lost and found items are given to the Ladies of Charity or another charitable group.
5. If a student would like to wear a belt, it must be a plain black or brown belt.
6. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts may wear their full scout uniform to school on the day of their meeting.
7. Non-uniform sweatshirts, hats, caps and scarves may not be worn in class.
8. Due to the misuse of the colored wrist bands, students may not wear the colored wrist bands to school.
