    Benefits of a Uniform Policy

    Research suggests that school uniforms

    • Improve discipline, self-esteem and self-respect.
    • Focus the student towards learning.
    • Eliminate the fear of whether their clothing choice will be acceptable by peers.
    • Strengthens school pride.
    • Identify student population from strangers on school grounds.
    • Cost effective.

    The uniform committee will only consider waivers for religious reasons. Parents MUST submit a letter from their clergy along with the waiver request. A Parent or Guardian may request by mail, or in person, an application for an exemption from the uniform program.  Exemption waivers must be completed by the 10th day of the student's enrollment.
