STUDENT DRESS CODE

 

Each school which desires to have mandatory school uniforms shall submit its request to the School Board for approval.  The School Board, if it approves the request, shall require all students in the school to wear the appropriate designated school uniforms to school.  Casual dress days for students may be held occasionally as designated by the principal.

 

Brown Upper Elementary School has a student uniform policy that gives the school a positive and distinctive identity and reflects the values of the school and community. All students are required to wear uniforms each day except for those days designated as "non-uniform" at the discretion of the school administration.

 

All students attending Brown Upper Elementary  must adhere to the school uniform policy.  Brand name logos or labels must not be displayed on any item of clothing, including belts and socks.  Only approved school logos are permitted.
