School Dress Code

  • Uniforms






    Starkey Elementary operates under the guidelines of a mandatory uniform policy.

    Students not in compliance will be sent to the office to change from inappropriate item(s).
    Continued infractions can be cause for parents to bring a change of clothes for their child.
