A Uniform Policy
In order to create a consistent and safe environment that is free of distractions, Imagine Foundations at Morningside Public Charter School has instituted a uniform dress code for all scholars. We believe that a higher standard of dress encourages greater respect for individuals, scholars and others, and results in a higher standard of behavior. In other words,coming to school dressed properly and professionally increases self worth which encourage academic achievement.
This belief is supported by research into the benefits of uniforms, though conventional wisdom suggests that mandatory uniform policies benefit scholars on specific behavioral issues (attendance and self control) and academic outcomes. Uniform policies also affect school environments and student outcomes by providing a visible and public symbol of commitment to school improvement and reform. With that said, the Uniform and Dress Code Policy was crafted in an effort to ensure that we “look the part” and represent our school community, Imagine Schools, and Prince George’s County Public Schools with pride and with excellence.
The Imagine Foundations at Morningside uniform consists of:
|Kindergarten through Fifth Grade||Sixth through Eighth Grade|
|Gym Uniform Worn by Grades K-8||All Staff|
Scholars will wear the navy blue blazer on Microsociety days- Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The navy blue sweater will worn on Tuesday and Thursday. The blue or gold polo is optional for dress down days. All required uniform items- shirts, ties, sweaters, blazers , and gym attire- must be purchased from our vendor, Flynn O’Hara Uniform. Cross tie will be available for purchase at school for $6.00.
Khaki bottoms and shoes may be purchased elsewhere. Parents may choose when scholars wear short or long-sleeve shirts, and shorts or long pants.
All parents must understand and agree with the dress code prior to the first day of school. Scholars are expected to be in their school uniforms on the first day of school.
