O'Farrell Uniform Policy


THE O’FARRELL UNIFORM POLICY 

THE O’FARRELL K - 5 ACADEMY

 2015-2016

 

O’Farrell requires that all students wear uniforms. Approved O’Farrell uniforms may be purchased at Mario’s Family Clothing. 28 N. Euclid Ave, 91950. 619-264-6081. They have a copy of this uniform policy that lists all of the approved O’Farrell uniform clothing. Please do not purchase anything that is not a part of this list as it will not be permitted on campus.

Purpose: Safety and Unity

Research has shown that students who dress alike also enjoy an increased sense of unity. The same evidence shows that uniforms will increase student safety, reduce violence and make it much easier to identify persons who do not belong on campus. Student uniforms ensure that we avoid styles of clothing that could be misinterpreted as gang-related, distracting, or immodest.

 

Scholarships/Assistance

Assistance may be available for students and families in need through Family Support Services. Contact them directly for more information.

 

Enforcement

Infractions will be routed to the student’s teacher, who will then follow through with appropriate discipline actions. If a student is not in uniform, the student will remain in their classroom for the remainder of the day or until the parent or guardian is able to bring them appropriate clothing. These additional consequences will be added with each infraction.
