Shirts may not have any writing or pictures that promote drugs or alcohol.  Pants may not sag.  Pants with holes or tears are allowed, but may not expose any skin above mid thigh. Shorts/skirts must be mid-thigh or fingertip length. Pajamas are not allowed, unless it is a designated "pajama day."  All out of uniform days are posted on the website and parents will receive a Connect Ed phone call to announce these special days.
