Results of School Uniform Vote
Of the votes we received, 53% were in favor of the uniform policy and 47% were against the uniform policy. As stated in the original voting form, we would need 75% in either direction to make a change. Since that is not the case, we will continue to have a uniform policy. For the uniform policy to be effective, it requires parental support. It takes an incredible amount of time from the teachers and administration to enforce something that is not supported by basically half of the community. Success of a uniform policy starts at home. However, if you are adamantly opposed to a uniform, you are within your rights to fill out an exemption request. These are available in the front office.
An adjustment has been made to the existing policy to make it consistent for all grades:
Tops: solid colors of white, navy, maroon, tan or spirit wear with Stone Lake logo. T-shirts with other logos and print are not recommended.
Bottoms: navy, khaki or jeans; jeans are not to be torn or decorated; length of shorts/dresses needs to be longer than the child’s longest finger when their hands are down at their sides.
