Dress Code

The purpose of wearing uniforms is so attention will not be focused on dress but on academics and character.  A dress code gives children pride in their school, a feeling of belonging, and a sense of orderliness that will carry over into academic areas.

 

Starting the first day of school, students must be dressed in uniform.  The uniform should be neat, mended, and clean at all times. Discolored, stained, or torn uniforms should be replaced.  Uniforms

can be purchased at Southwest Uniforms at 223 N. Getty St.

 

Special non-uniform days will be announced throughout the year.   However, the "dress code" will still be in effect for these days as well, shorts must be the appropriate length, shirts may not have inappropriate printing on them and midriffs will be covered.  Sleeveless shirts are acceptable as long as they are not spaghetti strap camisoles, halter tops, ribbed undershirts or any other type of tank top. Sleeveless sports shirts may be worn by boys or girls, but tight undershirts or shirts with thin straps of any kind are inappropriate. *Shoes must be uniform compliant (closed toe, rubber soled shoes). Boots, crocs, flip-flops backless or platform shoes are not allowed. Exceptions to this rule may be determined by the Head of School. Students who are unable to tie their own shoes should wear velcro or other non-tying shoes.  Shoes should not have lights, rollers, or other special effects that might be a distraction in the classroom. Socks must we worn at all times. No show type socks may be any color; long socks must be white.

 

Extremes in hairstyle and jewelry are discouraged.  Girls bows should be red, white, black or blue in color.  Headbands should be flat (no ears, horns, etc.) and should be red, white, black, brown, blue, silver or gold in color.  Jewelry should be minimal and should not cause a distraction to the student or others. Boys must keep their bangs shorter than the eyebrows and the back of their hair shorter than their shirt collar.  Boys are not allowed to wear earrings.

Students may wear non-uniform "outerwear" to and from school and outside for play.  Outerwear will consist of coats and jackets that the children wear during outside play. Only St. Philip’s Episcopal sweatshirts may be worn over St. Philip’s Episcopal School collared shirts. Heavy coats and jackets may also be worn, but must have a zipper in the front.

 

If a class is scheduled to go on a field trip, all students must wear their uniform or special t-shirt even if the trip is scheduled on a Friday, their birthday, etc.  Exceptions to this rule may be determined by the Head of School.

 

Students who wear inappropriate attire will be required to report to the office and will not be allowed back to the classroom until he/she has changed into appropriate attire.  Students will be sent home if necessary.

 

Shoes should fit well and be in good condition.  Boots, cleats, flip flops, crocs, clogs, backless or platform shoes are not safe for active wear and are unacceptable.  This applies to preschool children as well as grade students.  Socks are required at all times.

 

Paint and glue are used frequently, and although we use aprons or "paint shirts", there is no guarantee that your child will come home spotless.  Please provide raincoats and hats instead of umbrellas. Label all garments such as coats and sweaters.
