2014 - 2015 School Uniform Policy and Dress Code Guide

The ECS uniform policy and dress code guide support the important work that we engage in each day at school. Your support of this guide helps to ensure that our students are comfortable and recognizable in the park. It also aids in avoiding fashion competition, promoting safety, and maintaining an environment for academic achievement and learning. Thank you for your support of our school uniform policy and dress code guidelines!

-Khaki or navy blue pants or shorts (including cargo pants/shorts)

-White, light blue, or navy blue shirts – polo or oxford style, long, or short sleeved. No sleeveless tops.

GENERAL GUIDELINES:

-Students are expected to wear school uniforms each day. The building Principal may designate an ECS Day or Dress Down Day at his/her discretion. Families will be provided with one week’s notice before any ECS Day or Dress Down Day. On ECS Day students will be permitted to wear a green or yellow t-shirt or an ECS t-shirt with uniform bottoms. On a Dress Down Day students will be permitted to wear an outfit of their choice that is school appropriate (no ripped clothing, appropriate length dresses/skirts/shorts/skorts, no tank tops) and appropriate footwear (see below).

-Students are to wear flat shoes; no light-ups, Heely’s, crocs, flip-flops, open-toed or heeled shoes. Shoes may be any color.

-No hats, hoods, bandanas, or scarves can be worn inside of school.  Students are subject to applicable discipline for violations of the Uniform Policy.

 

COME TO SCHOOL PREPARED TO ENGAGE IN OUTDOOR LEARNING:

ECS students log over 1,000 hours of outdoor learning experiences in Frick Park each year. Due to the nature of our curriculum and the amount of time that is spent outdoors, we suggest that each student keep one extra uniform outfit and one pair of old shoes at school at all times. This ensures that students are prepared, even when an impromptu lesson develops. Families may also choose to send students to school in footwear that is appropriate for daily outdoor experiences.
