Uniform Requirements

Students must wear uniforms daily. The uniforms must be worn properly and be of the correct size. Families will be asked to bring a uniform to school if a student arrives without his or her uniform on.

The uniform requirement is designed to present a professional appearance, reduce school clothing expenses for families, and eliminate distracting or inappropriate dress and competition.
