Dress Code

Our dress code helps to establish an identity and pride for our school. It sets a standard for students to present themselves neatly and modestly. Assembly dress must be worn every Monday, on assembly days, and for specified programs or field trips. It is appropriate any day. Regular dress is required for all other days unless specified, such as Freedom Friday casual days, which occur on the last Friday of every month.

  • A few notes for everyone:
    • Our children are ACTIVE. Choose clothing while keeping in mind that a child will be outside, working with paints, and sitting on the floor. 
    • Hair should be combed and conservatively styled without covering the eyes. 
    • Shoes must be flat with closed toe and closed heel; sneakers are acceptable anytime.
  • Dress Code: SK-5
