Used Uniform Shop
Blanton Elementary School has organized and maintained a used uniform shop. Parents are welcome to donate used uniforms when students outgrow their uniforms or withdraw from Blanton.
Aim: Improve student behavior and increase student achievement.
Goal: Reduce incidents of student misconduct, raise student self-esteem, and ultimately raise student achievement through the implementation of a school-wide uniform policy.
Responsibility: It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to assure that uniforms conform to the school’s uniform policy. Parents/guardians need to be aware that just because a particular store or garment tag says that they meet uniform standards does not guarantee that the item in fact conforms to Blanton’s uniform policy. Uniforms may be brought to the school to determine if they conform to the school’s uniform policy.
