Dress Code

Franklin Elementary will not have uniforms this school year 2022-2023

Wearing the appropriate clothing is important so that clothes do not become a distraction from your studies. Hats, do-rags, scarves, sunglasses, cropped shirts or tank tops (one inch thick straps at a minimum), torn clothing, "sagging" pants, and ads for alcohol, drugs, and violence are distracting and are not permitted at school. Students in the elementary school are not permitted to wear make-up.

 We do not permit the use of any clothing, jewelry, or grooming styles that may indicate or imply membership or affiliation with gangs. We will not tolerate any activities, speech, or expression that could physically, mentally, or emotionally harm students. Any student wearing, carrying, or displaying gang paraphernalia or who is demonstrating behavior or using gestures that symbolize gang membership or are threatening to others will be subject to school discipline. Students not following dress code will be asked to change. If no change of clothes is available, parents will be called to request a change of clothes be provided.

Socks and shoes

Shoes with soles designed for outside use should be worn to enable a student to fully participate in PE and other physical activities. ​

 preferably sneaker- type, NO roller shoes
 low-heels only, for safety reasons
 No sandals or flip flops
 socks and shoes must be worn to PE classes

Hats and Hoods

Hats and hoods are great for outdoor use but are not to be worn in common areas (hallways, cafeteria, gym, etc.) during the school day. Teacher discretion in classroom.​
