Experience the power of public education.
The following is new information included in the 2019-2020 PCSSD Student Handbook. There are two changes we want to note: First, in grades K-5, students may wear any color polo-style shirt without emblems or logos. Please review the section of the handbook that pertains to student dress, and if you have any questions, contact your school office. Thank you!
Pre-K Students Dress Code
Pre-K students do not have a uniform dress code. Parents are encouraged to send an extra change of clothing (including underwear and socks) in a bag labeled with the child’s name on it.
"A student will not practice a mode of dress that disrupts the educational process, calls attention to the individual, violates federal, state or local law, or affects the welfare and safety of students and teachers. Furthermore, students are prohibited from obscene, lewd or vulgar comments or designs and wearing clothing directed toward or intended to threaten, intimidate or demean an individual or group of individuals as well as items advertising alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs.
Students in the District, grades Kindergarten (K) through five (5), will wear school uniforms; navy and khaki bottoms and solid polo style shirts without emblems.
For safety reasons: The Cato Team is requesting that students wear closed toe shoes, preferably tennis. There are rocks on the playground and students have difficulty running and playing when they wear flip-flops and slides.
Exemptions: Parents may apply to building principal for full or partial exemptions or waivers for students due to handicapping condition or religious observation. New students to district schools will be given two weeks to comply with the Uniform Dress Code. Denied exemption requests may be appealed to the Assistant Superintendent for Equity and Pupil Services.”
