Uniform Policy

 

Dress Code Uniform Procedure

Whittier Elementary School requests that all students wear the school uniform.  A school uniform helps promote pride and professionalism and reminds us all that our primary focus is on academics.  The quality of work students produce at school is effected by their personal appearance.  Students will dress with reasonable standards of cleanliness and modesty.  Clothing and hair styles are to be worn that will not draw the undue attention of peers or be distracting to class instruction.

 

Under the policy, students are required to wear red or white collared polo shirts and blue pants, skirts, or shorts and tennis shoes to school every day unless they have a signed parent waiver on file in the office.  Students that arrive at school out of uniform will be asked to call their parents to have a uniform brought to them at school.

 

The dress code will be enforced on scheduled spirit or free dress days. Please refer the Parent/Student Handbook for additional information.

 

Students who do not wear a uniform must have a waiver signed by a parent on file in the office.   However, please consider:

  • Uniforms make the choice of what children wear faster and easier
  • They can be less expensive
  • Students look neat and well dressed.
  • Research shows children wearing uniforms focus more on academics and good behavior.

We recommend that you purchase at least one uniform for your child for class field trips and special activities so they don’t feel excluded.

 

Your compliance with the Uniform Policy is appreciated.
