UNIFORM DRESS CODE
Putnam School has a mandatory uniform policy. The use of school uniforms was established to improve self-esteem, bridge socio-economic differences, promote positive behavior, enhance school safety and provide parents and students with convenient and appropriate school attire at a low cost. Parents who object to their child wearing a school uniform must file a written petition with the principal. The petition must be based on sound philosophical or religious objections. The building principal will approve or disapprove all requests.
The District expects students to come to school in clothes that are clean and that will not be a health or safety threat to themselves or to other students or staff. The District prohibits any clothing or grooming that in the Principal’s/designee judgment, may reasonably be expected to cause disruption of or interference with normal school operations. Tattoos, colored hair, Mohawks, make-up, and excessive jewelry are considered a distraction and not allowed at Putnam.
