Uniform update for 2021-2022 school year
The following regarding uniform policy revisions is being sent on behalf of Mr. Nick Mercier, Vice President of the Board of Education and Chair of the Policy Committee.
Over the past year, the Board of Education’s Policy Committee has been reviewing our School Attire policy. At our most recent meeting in June, we finalized a draft policy with the committee’s unanimous support. We are confident that this policy, or one very similar, will be approved at our next regular Board meeting in August.
Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, students in Grades 6-8 will not be required to wear uniforms and will follow the same guidelines as students in grades 9-12. This is a change from our previous policy when students in grades Pre-K through 8 had different guidelines than those in grades 9-12.
The guidelines for students in Pre-K through Grade 5 will also be loosening. Students in Grades Pre-K through 5 are expected to wear a solid or patterned shirt without any text, graphics, or logos. Any form of comfortable pants or bottoms will be allowed as long as it is solid or patterned and has no text, graphics, or logos.
The Policy Committee hopes that these new guidelines meet the needs of all our families by providing some consistency for those who preferred the previous attire policy while allowing more freedom of choice to our families who felt it was too restrictive. Please keep in mind that any clothing that would have previously complied with our school attire policy will comply with this new policy.
