School Year 2010-2011
Schools throughout the country have experienced improved student behavior, friendlier school climates, and enhanced school pride by establishing uniform dress code policies. The King Intermediate SCBM Council adopted a student uniform policy beginning in school year 1999-2000. Our goals were to improve student safety, increase school pride, reduce the financial burden for school clothes, and improve school climate. If you want to support school safety, please support our student uniform policy.
What is the policy?
All students are expected to wear student uniforms beginning the very first day of the school year. The uniform must be worn upon entering the campus until leaving school. No Exceptions! (Dirty clothes is not a valid excuse)
1) The student uniform t-shirt that can be purchased from school;
2) Bottoms (skirts, pants, shorts, capris, etc.) that are at least pointer-fingertip length or with a 4" inseam;
3) Students' uniform sold the previous year;
4) Footwear is required;
Jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts are allowed but should not contain any distasteful slogans, profanity, or images. It must be an open front jacket/sweatshirt. No pullovers allowed. Uniforms may not be altered or changed from the original appearance unless the child has special needs approved by an administrator prior to alterations.
Assistance for Financial Need?
In order to assist our families who may be having some financial difficulty, 2 free t-shirts for the first 3 t-shirts purchased only. Eligibility is determined by free or reduced lunch standards.
