Hickam Elementary School Uniform and Dress Code Policy SY 2017-2018

Studies have shown that clothing can contribute to distractions or can contribute to improved learning among students. (BOE Policy 4410) Our students wear uniform tops in a school-wide effort to keep our students safe and easily identified by emergency personnel, as well as minimize distractions and improve learning among students.

Uniform Waiver Policy
The DOE policy requires a provision allowing parents to request a waiver to the wearing of the uniform. Requests for waivers will be granted in cases of (1) financial hardship, (2) medical reasons that prevent the student's ability to wear the school uniform, or (3) incoming students (PCS date within 30 days of enrollment). Each waiver will be reviewed on a case by case basis and must be renewed annually. For those students who hold a waiver, the Hickam Dress Code applies in its entirety as stated above. Waivers can be revoked at any time.
