STUDENT DRESS CODE
Uniform Dress Expectations
Student dress and personal appearance are important to school conduct.
Our school uniform dress has been designed by and approved through community vote to enhance the learning environment of our students.James W. Rice parents, teachers, and school officials believe the following dress code is in the best interest of our students for the following reasons:
- To enhance a positive climate for learning.
- To eliminate peer pressure dealing with student attire.
- To instill school unity and pride.
- To promote affordable dress.
The school uniform dress code for students in kindergarten through third grade shall be as follows:
A. Royal blue, white, or gray in color
B. Solid colors
C. Short sleeve or long sleeve polo.
D. James W. Rice t-shirts.
Pants, shorts, skirts, jumpers
A. Khaki in color
A uniform assistance application is available through the school if support is needed and uniforms cannot be purchased.
Under no circumstances will a child’s opportunity to attend James W. Rice be taken away because of not wearing the uniform dress apparel. However, if your student comes to school out of uniform a reminder note will be sent home. After three warning notices, your child will be sent to the attendance clerk for a uniform to wear. The student’s clothing will be kept until the uniform is returned.
Clean, neat and appropriate grooming is expected at all times.
FINAL DECISION ON SUITABILITY IS RESERVED FOR THE PRINCIPAL.
