2015-2016 School Year
In cooperation with
students, parents, teachers, and administration, Heroes K-8 Academy will adhere
to a uniform dress policy. This policy was designed with the intent of
improving student culture, safety and pride for those who attend the Heroes K-8
Academy. It is the general feeling of
the administration and the greater Heroes K-8 community that a standardized
dress policy will improve academic achievement, safety, student focus,
discipline, self-esteem and school spirit. All
students attending the Heroes K-8 Academy must adhere to the uniform dress
policy, and will not be allowed to attend classes until they are outfitted in
appropriate apparel, as we want our students to DRESS FOR SUCCESS. Parents/guardians are also expected to
support the policy. Other
district policies that govern student appearance are still in effect and will
be enforced as they were before. Below are the guidelines for the Heroes K-8
Uniform Dress Policy.
