Uniform Policy for SGE

​Dress Code-S​cholars Uniforms are required for all Scholars enrolled at Shamrock Gardens Elementary School. 

​​​

School uniforms help us create the safest possible environment for our Scholars. All Scholars are required to wear the school uniform every day. School Spirit T-Shirts or College T-Shirts, no jerseys, may be worn on Fridays. 


​The school uniform consists of: 

• Bottoms: Dark blue or khaki bottoms (pants, shorts, skirts, jumpers, skorts, etc.) Shorts and skirts should fall slightly above the knee line. Scholars SHOULD NOT wear blue jeans of any kind. *This year we will host one uniform free day per month (see calendar). 


• Tops: White, light or dark green, light or dark blue tops (long or short sleeved shirts, blouses, turtlenecks, etc.) All tops must have a collar or must be a dress shirt. (No T-shirts) Shirts/blouses must be tucked into pants at all times. Shamrock School Spirit T-Shirts can be part of the uniform daily as long as they are paired with uniform bottoms. 


• Dresses: Dark blue or khaki. Dresses should fall slightly above the knee line.


• Socks, Leggings, and Tights: Scholars should wear dark blue, white, or neutral colored socks, leggings, or tights with their uniforms.


• Shoes: Scholars will be expected to wear shoes that have a closed toe and flat. Scholars can wear tennis shoes or any type of other casual or dress shoes, please no heels/wedges. Open-toe and open-heel shoes such as sandals and flip-flops are not permitted for safety reasons.


• Belts: Scholars will be expected to wear a dark-colored belt when necessary ( i.e. pants, skirts, shorts, that are larger than child's waist) with their uniforms. Shirts/blouses must be tucked into pants at all times.


• Hats: Scholars will not be allowed to wear hats, caps, hoods, or scarves inside the school building. Please note the following guidelines:

• Scholars are to be in uniform everyday, except on scheduled non-uniform days (see below) or when special permission is granted by administration for Spirit Days. 


• Parents will receive advanced notice of Spirit Days. On those days your child can wear the theme of the day or their SGES uniform. Spirit Days are not non-uniform days. 


• Scholars may be excluded from incentives and rewards if they are not wearing the required uniform on the day of the incentive or reward.
