Consequences for Noncompliance
Azalea Elementary has a mandatory uniform policy. All students must arrive to school in uniform every day. If the uniform policy cannot be supported by the family, ultimately the parent should request a school without uniforms.
First Offense: There will be a teacher/student conference as to why the student is not in uniform. A letter of notification on non-compliance will be sent home. The letter must be signed and returned to the classroom teacher.
Second Offense: Student will be referred to the office for a uniform conference. A mandatory parent contact will be made to remind parents of the uniform requirement. A second reminder letter from the office will be sent home to be signed and returned to an administrator.
Third Offense: Student will be referred to the office for a uniform conference. A mandatory parent contact will be made by the social worker to remind parents of the uniform requirement and to see if parents need some assistance with compliance.
Fourth Offense: Mandatory parent conference with school leadership.
Fifth Offense: Final parent conference to include input from the Director of School Operations to discuss an administrative transfer to school where uniforms are not required.
