Uniforms

School uniformsIn February 2017, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors approved a district-wide uniform policy for all students starting in the 2017-18 school year. Beginning with the first day of school for your child, either August 14th for early start schools or September 5th for all traditional calendar schools, all students in grades K-12 will be required to comply with the school uniform policy.

The policy sets uniform guidelines for all Milwaukee Public Schools; pants must be tan, navy blue or black khaki-style pants with black or navy blue polo shirts. A student may wear any combination of the official district uniform colors or school- identified colors as approved by the principal and School Governance Council.  Specific information regarding your child's school can be found in this document.

As parents, you have the option of purchasing uniform items from any vendor who meets your needs.  Find a list of suggested vendors that you may contact when purchasing uniforms.

If you have any additional questions or concern, please contact your child's school. Parents who wish to opt out of the uniform requirement at our school may contact the principal directly to complete the necessary forms.

What is the uniform policy for my child's school?
