Habits of Success

 

Pikes Peak Prep Handbook: 2016-2017

 

School Dress Code Policy

The purpose of the Pikes Peak Prep uniform code is to create a professional, safe, and respectful community where students can place their sole focus on learning.  The uniform code is in effect from the start of the school day until the end of the school day. Students are required to follow the uniform code Monday through Friday.  On occasion, and as scheduled by the administration, the dress code will be modified such as on class picture day, spirit day, college shirt day, or as a reward for habits of success.   

Parent and Staff Responsibilities 

Parents have the responsibility to ensure that their children arrive at school in the proper uniform.  Within the school, the uniform code will be enforced by the classroom teachers, other staff members, and Pikes Peak Prep administrators who will make final decisions regarding uniform issues.  Cheerful, consistent compliance with our dress code policy by all is expected. 

Dress Code Wear Guidance 

Students are expected to be dressed neatly, be well groomed and give a general good appearance.  Approved dress code clothing needs to be of appropriate size/fit, with no holes and in good repair and must be worn as intended by the policy.  A student can be out of compliance for wearing non-approved items, or by wearing approved items in a manner that is sloppy, immodest, or otherwise inappropriate.

P.E. Attire:

Additional Dress Guidance: 

  • For K-8 students, piercings and earrings are not allowed for safety reasons.  However, students may wear studs in their ears.

  • Visible tattoos not permitted for students in grades K-12.  On a case-by-case basis, a parent/guardian may request a waiver of the visible tattoo policy for a high school student if the tattoo is of special medical or religious significance.  Such granting of a waiver will be at the sole discretion of the principal.


Purchasing School Uniforms

Parents may buy school uniforms from local stores (Walmart, JC Penny, Target, etc.) or they may order the uniforms on-line from French Toast at this website.  If ordering on-line, use the source code: QS5EMBM.  The shirts from French Toast are embroidered with the Pikes Peak Prep logo and are preferred.  However, the administration will acquire logo patches that can be sewn on.
