Benefits of a Uniform Policy
Research suggests that school uniforms seem to improve discipline, self-esteem and self-respect. School uniforms tend to focus the child’s attention to learning and eliminate the fear of whether the choice of clothing will be acceptable by peers. Uniforms provide students with a school identity and strengthen school pride. Uniforms for students help identify student population from strangers on school grounds. It’s also quite cost effective!
All children should start wearing uniforms on the first day of school this August. Please call the school at 754-322-6850 if you have any questions or concerns. A request may be made by mail or in person by the parents/guardians for an application for exemption from the uniform program. Exemption waivers must be completed by the tenth day of the student’s enrollment.
