First Presbyterian Day School

School Uniforms

LINKS

The uniform policy of FPDS encourages an atmosphere of learning and eliminates competition in dress. Our school desires cooperation from both students and parents in order for the uniform policy to work well. Please see student handbook for specific dress code information. 

Teachers will monitor student dress each day and will issue warning slips to any student violating the dress code. The administrative team will randomly inspect student dress and issue dress code violations as needed. If your child receives a dress code violation notice, please help him or her correct the violation and sign and return the slip to school the next day. Please note that in some cases, a student may be asked to call his or her parents to bring different clothing to correct a violation. Students who do not take care of dress code violations involving hair within a seven-day period will be sent home until hair is cut to meet school requirements. Students who are repeat offenders of the dress code policy may face detention or suspension. The administrative team reserves the right to initiate revisions to the dress code as needed during the school year. Parents and students will be notified of any revisions that are made.
