Field Day dress code.

 Dress Code for Athletic Field Day

 

All shirts worn for athletic practices and field day should be modest, loose fitting, in good repair (no holes, torn sleeves, etc.), and should be worn either tucked in or well over the waist of the pants/shorts if not tucked in. No midriffs may be shown. T-shirts are preferred—no tank tops, camisoles, or sports bras may be worn as outer garments. Sleeveless shirts may be worn if modest.

 

Pants/shorts should be modest, and in good repair (no holes, torn sleeves, etc.). Pants should be worn at the waist and should be no shorter than mid-thigh and no-longer than just below the knee. No short-shorts or long baggy shorts may be worn. No boxers or undergarments may be visible. If a player would like to wear volleyball spandex shorts, they must be covered by loose fitting athletic shorts.

 

Jackets and sweatshirts may be worn to school for warmth during recess, transitions but must be free of logos and messages, with the following exceptions: sports team logos (e.g., Lions, Spurs) and apparel. Such jackets are not part of the uniform and will not be warn in class. Please refer to the outerwear guidelines for further information.

 

Footwear should be athletic in nature: no sandals, open-toed, or platform shoes. Hats and sunscreen may be appropriate if the students will be in the sun. Hat styles should follow the same guidelines as above.

Dress Code re-set

 Dress Code Update

Uniform Reminders

Please review p.104 – 110 of the Family Handbook to ensure that your student is meeting the dress code. We ask that families pay special attention to the following:

Shoes

“Students may wear either Keds School Days shoes (white and navy blue) or any all-white or all-black athletic shoe. Please, if possible, avoid the K-Swiss all white shoe because it is very difficult to keep them tied and are not suitable for PE/athletics. Students must wear solid white or navy socks that are free of logos. Socks must be visible. No-show socks are not permitted.”

Pants

“All dress slacks must reach to the shoe but should not drag on the ground. The slacks must have belt loops and a solid, dark belt must be used. No jeans (including khaki-colored denim) or pants with external sewn pockets, rivets, or other jean like characteristics are permitted. No Dickies, cargo pants, oversized pants, super baggy pants, dungarees, extra pockets, extra zippers, or extra seams will be permitted.”

Shorts

“Shorts should go to just above the knee but not below and should not be excessively tight or loose fitting. Shorts should be worn at the waist (and no boxers or undergarments may be visible – including at sports practices and games). No jean shorts (including khaki-colored denim) or shorts with external sewn pockets, rivets, or other jean like characteristics are permitted. No Dickies, cargo shorts, oversized shorts, super-baggy shorts, extra pockets, extra zippers, or extra seams will be permitted. The shorts must have belt loops and be worn with a dark belt. (Kindergarten is exempt from wearing a belt for toileting purposes.)”

Boys Grooming

“Hair should be neatly combed or styled. Hair must be above the top of the shirt collar. Hair should be styled so that it does not fall below the eyebrows or past the midpoint of the ear. Hair must be natural looking and conservative in its color and cut (no bleaching or unnatural streaking/highlighting, no artificial jet-black coloring, and no unnatural colors). Accommodations for religious reasons are permitted. The hair is to be neatly combed before the beginning of each school day. No jewelry except a simple analog or digital watch (no mart watches or Fitbits) may be worn. Any watch that is bluetooth capable and/or connects to WIFI or internet is considered a smart watch. No artificial coloring of the

hair, extreme spiking of the hair or mohawks (including combed down or over and some facsimile of a mohawk). Hair gel that helps the hair stay in place or controls curly hair is allowable.”

Girls Grooming

“Hair should be neatly combed or styled. Neat small bows, barrettes, headbands, and hair ties are permissible so long as they coordinate with the uniform. Hair must be natural looking and conservative in its color and cut (no bleaching or unnatural streaking/highlighting, no artificial jet‐ black coloring, and no unnatural colors). Accommodations for religious reasons are permitted. K-6 students may not wear make-up or nail polish, except for clear polish.

Simple stud-styled earrings may be worn (no dangling or hoop earrings). If a student wears a necklace, it must be tucked into the shirt and not visible. No other jewelry except a simple analog or digital watch (no smart watches or Fitbits) may be worn. Any watch that is Bluetooth capable and connects to the WIFI or internet is considered a smart watch.”

Skirts

“The skirt or jumper hem may be no higher than just above the knee, both in front and in back. To measure a correct skirt/jumper length: properly adjust the skirt at the waist, kneel on a level surface, and measure at least two inches between skirt’s hem and the floor. Skirts must be worn at the waist. 5th & 6th grade girls choosing to wear the upper school skirt must still wear modesty shorts underneath.”

This picture, provided by Dennis Uniforms, shows a skirt that meets the dress code stated above.
