The mandatory uniform policy’s purpose is for all students to be dressed for success and ready to receive their education. Students MUST be in compliance with the uniform policy at all times while they are on school grounds (including areas outside of the physical school building).

All students who refuse to comply with this policy for any reason will be placed in In- School Suspension. Each infraction by the student will be logged, and the student’s parent will be contacted.

 If the student is not able to comply with the uniform policy, the school may provide the student with proper uniform attire while supplies last.

DCMR B2408.6: The Chancellor of the District of Columbia Public Schools authorizes principals of District of Columbia Public Schools to establish and implement mandatory uniform policies.
