  DRESSING FOR SUCCESS THE HORNET WAY: OUR UNIFORM POLICY

Uniforms are required for all students enrolled at Albemarle Road Middle School. School uniforms help us create the safest possible environment for our students. Please help us by ensuring that your child is dressed in uniform each day.

Each student’s uniform must:                                                  

• Fit properly, not to exceed one (1) size beyond the correct size;
• Not be modified in any way;
• Not allow for sagging, bagging, dragging, or excessively tight; and
• Not have visible logos

Upon new enrollment during the school year, a student will have 3 school days in which to comply with the dress code. By the 4th day, the student must be in compliance.

Shirts
Students are expected to wear navy blue or white shirts either short or long sleeved with collars. Shirts may not bear any insignias, slogans, pictures, diagrams, or any other adornment or writing. Only white tee shirts can be worn underneath the uniform shirt. 
Students who purchased "Class Of" t-shirts from the school may wear the "Class Of" t-shirt on Fridays with regular uniform bottoms

Bottom Wear

Girls are expected to wear khaki (tan in color) or navy pants, shorts, skirts, skorts, or capris. Skirts and Skorts must have at least a 6 inch inseam and be no more than 4 inches above the knee.  All leggings must match the color of the student’s skirt/shorts. Boys are expected to wear Khaki (tan in color) or navy pants or shorts. Pants must be worn at the waistline.

Sweaters and Sweatshirts

If a student wishes to wear something over his or her uniform shirt, they may wear navy blue or white crewneck sweaters or sweatshirts. Hoods, logos/writing, and designs are unacceptable.
