Uniform Dress Code Policy

Buckner Fanning School believes strongly in the value of our students wearing uniforms to school for several reasons.  The purpose of wearing school uniforms is to encourage our students to experience a greater sense of school identity and belonging.  It has been proven that uniforms help reduce distractions, so students can focus on their schoolwork, which increases their academic performance. Uniforms also help eliminate peer pressure where clothing is concerned and wearing a uniform saves time and reduces stress by eliminating the difficult decision about what to wear each day. 

The uniform is part of school policy. Occasional exceptions occur, such as certain field trips and “Drop the Dress Code” days. Students will be notified in advance when these exceptions apply. In all cases of student dress, the principle of neat and clean will apply; clothes must fit properly and not have holes, frayed edges, or obvious safety pins. Parents will be called and asked to bring a change of clothes if a student is not dressed appropriately. Students will be held accountable to be in uniform by faculty and administrators.
