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 students. We believe that a higher standard of dress encourages greater respect for individuals, students and others, and results in a higher standard of behavior. In other words, students who come to school dressed properly will excel academically and conduct themselves appropriately while at school.

This belief is supported by research into the benefits of uniforms, though conventional wisdom suggests that mandatory uniform policies benefit students 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.

The Imagine Foundations at Morningside uniform consists of:

  • Khaki bottoms (pants, appropriate shorts, skorts, skirts)
  • Elementary-Light Blue polo shirt with school logo
  • All black belt
  • All black shoes
  • All black socks
  • ONLY navy blue sweaters-no jackets, sweatshirts, no hoodies, no scarves
  • Only headwear that matches the uniform

All required uniform items must be purchased from our vendor, By Grace Uniform Outfitters, because they will bear an official Imagine Foundations at Morningside logo that is specific to our school. You may order uniforms by visiting the store, located at 8843 Woodyard Road, Clinton MD 20735, by calling (301) 877-7780 or faxing your order (301) 877-7781, or by visiting http://www.by-grace.com. The Web site code is 4605.

Students are expected to be in their school uniforms on the first day of school.
