Uniforms and Dress Code

All students in grades K-8 are required to own a COMPLETE uniform including a CCS authorized jacket. Mr. Michael’s Uniform Company will schedule a day to take orders. Clothes must always conform to rules of modesty, good taste and appropriateness.  We ask parents’ cooperation to see that the school uniform is worn at all times.  It is not the responsibility of school personnel to be constantly reminding students about proper uniforms.  Non-uniform items may be confiscated. If a child is unable to be in full uniform, a written note of explanation must be presented to the teacher for each day the student is out of uniform. Some excuses may not be acceptable.  Long-term excuses are not acceptable.  STUDENTS WHO ARE OUT OF UNIFORM WILL BE GIVEN A UNIFORM INFRACTION NOTICE TO BE TAKEN HOME AND SIGNED.

Behavior grades will be seriously affected by uniform violations.

If students have a different hairstyle for the summer months, make sure you allow enough time to rectify it and get it restyled appropriately for the new school year.
