Dress Code/Uniform

DRESS CODE: SPRING CREEK ELEMENTARY IS A UNIFORM SCHOOL

Students at Spring Creek Elementary are to abide by the school’s dress code policy. The personal appearance of the student is the primary responsibility of the parent/guardian. When students are dressed appropriately for school, they realize it is time to work and learn. It is the intent of the dress code to provide our students with a feeling of school pride.

UNIFORM POLICY

The uniforms for students are as follows:

  • Polo shirts (with a collar) in solid colors, long or short sleeve or button-down Oxford shirts in solid colors, long or short sleeve.
  • All shirts MUST be tucked in.
  • Pants, shorts, skirts, skorts, jumpers and capri pants must be navy blue (no denim), tan/khaki or black only. Shorts and pants should not be “cargo style” with large outside pockets.
  • Shorts, skirts, jumpers and skorts are to be no shorter than 2 inches above the knee.
  • Solid color sweaters or school logo zippered fleece may be worn in class or in the cafeteria, but sweatshirts, coats and jackets are to be worn only outdoors and not in the classroom. No jackets or sweatshirts with hoods are allowed in classrooms.
  • A long sleeve plain white, gray or navy shirt (no other color) may be worn under the polo style shirt as needed for warmth.
  • Leggings are allowed under skirts or jumpers but must be solid color-black, navy, or tan.
  • Camouflage clothing of any color is not allowed.
  • Per District policy, adornments that are attached (pierced) to exposed body parts, other than the ear, are prohibited. Examples of prohibited adornments to exposed body parts include, but are not limited to, objects attached or pierced to the tongue, nose, eyebrow, cheeks, lips and teeth (grills). Large size earrings and long necklaces are prohibited.

Spring Creek t-shirts or school related t-shirts may be worn on Fridays for “Spirit Day” with uniform bottoms.

POLICY AT ALL TIMES

  • Due to outdoor activities, closed toe shoes shall be worn at all times. Any shoe worn must be securely attached to the foot so that it cannot fall off. High heels, clogs, crocs, flip-flops, backless shoes, and boots, etc. are not allowed. Solid colored socks should be worn with shoes.
  • Apparel shall be adequate in both length and coverage.
  • Clothing must be of appropriate size to fit the child. Oversized shirts, pants and/or jackets are not allowed. Pants should fit properly and be fastened at the waist.
  • Articles of clothing or jewelry that could cause injury are prohibited. Long necklaces are prohibited.
  • Any clothing, style or accessory of personal appearance shall not detract from the educational process.
  • Colored hair gel, hairspray, hair glitter or glitter body gel is not permitted.
  • Hair should be well-groomed, clean and an appropriate length.
  • Mohawk haircuts and colored or painted hair are not allowed. Moderately spiked hair is allowed. Designs in hair can be cut in no more than ¼ of the student’s head.
  • Make-up is not allowed unless it is for a performance and requested by the school.
  • Clothing is to be clean and in good condition. (If a student needs uniforms provided by school, please send a letter to the Principal.)

Any student not conforming to the District’s policy and/or the Spring Creek Elementary Dress Code will be required to call home for an appropriate change and if the clinic does not have a change of clothing for student.

DRESS CODE WILL BE CHECKED DAILY

P.E. Attire

Tennis shoes or sneakers (no sneaker boots) and socks are required for physical education classes. Shorts should be worn for P. E. especially under skirts and dresses. Caps, hats and/or sunglasses may be worn for P.E. classes. Students will not be allowed to participate in P.E. without proper attire.

Protection from the Sun

To help prevent students from the effects of exposure to the sun, caps and sunglasses may be worn at P.E., on outdoor field trips, and any other school sponsored outdoor activities. When students come indoors these articles must be removed and placed in the student’s own book bag or other designated storage area. Items must be labeled.

Shatterproof plastic U.V. protective sunglasses are recommended for all outside activities. Polycarbonate lenses provide the utmost impact resistance. U.V. coating for all prescription lenses is appropriate.

Sunscreen is also a beneficial protection against sun exposure. If parents wish to have their student protected, the following guidelines need to be followed:

  • Sunscreen should be applied at home before the student dresses for school. This will provide protection to the student during the time going to school, as well as during the rest of the day.
  • Sunscreen should only be brought to school if a Sunscreen Application Consent Form is submitted to clinic and signed by the parent. Forms may be obtained from the school office.
