Gulfport Elementary is a mandatory uniform school.
School uniforms must be worn everyday.
The exception to this is when individual students or entire classes receive a "no uniform day" reward. This "no uniform day" reward will be written in the student's agenda.
On a "no uniform day," students must still comply with Gulfport's uniform policy for shoes and hats, as well as the Pinellas County School Board's policies which state that:
- shoulders must be covered
- shorts/skirts must be of appropriate length.
- The entire School Board dress code requirements are found in the PCSB Student Dress Code.
If you are unsure if your student has received a "no uniform day" reward, please send a uniform in your student's backpack in case there is a need to change clothes.
Gulfport Uniform Requirements:
TOPS – Blouses, collared shirts, sweaters, sweatshirts and jackets in the following colors:
- Solid navy blue

Tights or leggings may be worn under a skirt, skort or jumper and must be in the following colors:

Blouses and shirts must be tucked in. Slacks, shorts, skirts, and skorts must fit securely about the waist. A "zip-tie belt" will be provided if a student's bottoms do not fit.

HATS – May only be worn during outside P.E. activities.
Parents are encouraged to donate new/used uniform tops, uniform bottoms, underwear, and socks so that the office can loan clothes to students who spill food, have "accidents," or have other reasons to change clothes during the school day.
