STUDENT DRESS CODE
Uniform Dress Expectations
dress and personal appearance are important to school conduct. Our
school uniform dress has been designed by and approved through community
vote to enhance the learning environment of our students.
parents, teachers, and school officials believe the following dress
code is in the best interest of our students for the following reasons:
- To enhance a positive climate for learning.
- To eliminate peer pressure dealing with student attire.
- To instill school unity and pride.
- To promote affordable dress.
The school uniform dress code for students in kindergarten through third grade shall be as follows:
- Navy blue, white, khaki in color
- Solid colors
- Short sleeve or long sleeve
- Westwood Spirit shirts
Pants, shorts, skirts, jumpers
- Navy, white or khaki in color
Not Acceptable At All
- Hats, caps, bandannas
- Flip flops, thongs, platform/high heels or skate shoes
- No sagging pants
- No mohawk hair style
uniform assistance application is available through the school if
support is needed and uniforms cannot be purchased. Under no
circumstances will a child’s opportunity to attend Westwood be taken
away because of not wearing the uniform dress apparel. However, if your
student comes to school out of uniform a reminder note will be sent
home. After three warning notices, your child will be sent to the
attendance clerk for a uniform to wear. The student’s clothing will be
kept until the uniform is returned. If a student continues to not wear
the uniform dress apparel a home visit will be made to assist the family
in obtaining the appropriate uniform clothing.
Clean, neat and appropriate grooming is expected at all times. FINAL DECISION ON SUITABILITY IS RESERVED FOR THE PRINCIPAL.
