Parents, This summer we made some adjustments to the school uniform requirements. Allowing students to wear athletic shoes was a way to keep the concept of the uniform and help parents who were finding it difficult to buy appropriate dress shoes. It was not intended to allow just any athletic shoe. We have students who are far away from wearing a black or brown athletic shoe. We have neon green and pink shoes and even shoes with flashing lights. Please insist your child adheres to the dress code. Thank you.
