Thomas S. Stone Elementary School
Procedure for School Uniforms
April 14, 2004 Thomas S. Stone Elementary has become a MANDATORY UNIFORM School
Purpose: The Board of Education Policy Number 0114 encourages schools
and communities to establish a uniform program. The parents and surrounding
communities of Thomas S. Stone Elementary feel that a Mandatory Uniform policy
will enhance our students academically and decrease peer pressure.
Mandatory Uniform School Compliance Measures - Beginning August 23, 2004
school shall communicate on a regular basis with parents(s) or guardians(s) so
that the expectations, rationale, and benefits of this program are fully
understood by the student and his/her family. Disciplinary action will be taken
to encourage compliance with this policy. Exceptions to wearing the uniform are permitted when:
for Consistent Violations
Opt-Out Process in a Mandatory Uniform School:
parent may exercise their right to opt-out of the Mandatory School Uniform
Program at the school. The student
will be reassigned through established procedures to another school and
transportation will NOT be provided.

program at that school by completing a APPLICATION FOR EXEMPTION FROM MANDATORY

(45) days after their child has been assigned to the school after the school
