Tuition Free Charter School

Beginning the 2021-2022 school, all students, K-8th grade, will have the same uniform policy.  Students will be allowed to wear PPA uniforms from the previous year in any color during the 21-22 school year.  The uniform policy is outlined below:

  • Our students wear uniforms that consist of a logo embroidered polo or oxford shirt, with navy, khaki, black or denim bottoms.
  • Shoes must be appropriate for PE on PE days; shoes must lace up or have Velcro. All K-5th grade students have PE every day of the week.  No wheels, lights, or other attachments and distractions such as glitter (but not limited to glitter) to the shoes will be permitted.  Middle School students may wear boating shoes or other similar closed-toe closed-heel shoes on non-PE days.
  • Socks and tights must be solid navy, solid black, solid maroon, or solid white, with no imprints, prints, or designs.
  • Outerwear worn indoors (sweatshirts, jackets, etc.) must be solid navy, solid maroon, solid white, or solid grey with no decoration except the PPA logo. Outerwear that is not in alignment with the uniform policy must be removed when inside the building.
  • No hats or hoods are allowed inside the building.
  • All students are expected to be in uniform on the first day. Should you have an emergency that prevents your child from being in uniform, please send a note with your child or contact the office and we will decide whether the child needs to be sent home or sit out.
  • We have a Uniform Infraction Form that teachers and staff members complete if a student is not in uniform. In addition to parents being called to bring uniforms, Consequences of Action (COA’s) will be given if a student has three infractions. Habitual non-compliance with uniforms may result in a request for reassignment.


                          

      Additional dress code items:

  • Students should be well-groomed, and the uniform shall be neat and clean, promoting a positive educational environment.
  • Hair color must be a natural color.
  • Only appropriate earrings in the ears are allowed.  Hoops larger than one inch are not permitted
  • Sunglasses may not be worn inside unless a parent provides a doctor’s note to the school.
  • All trousers, pants, or shorts must cover undergarments, including boxer shorts.
  • No wheels, lights, or other attachments to the shoes will be permitted.
  •  If skirts or skorts are worn, they must be longer than the child’s fingertips.  If students wear skirts or jumpers, they must have shorts or tights underneath.  


 Accommodations may be made for those requesting such concessions because of religious, disability, or medical reasons.  Please contact the Principal to discuss accommodations.​
