Dress Code for Caloosa Elementary School

The way we dress influences our attitude about ourselves and our work. When students are dressed appropriately for school, they know it is time to learn. Our dress code will provide students with a feeling of pride and unity.

ALL Caloosa Elementary School students follow a uniform dress code. If you choose one uniform piece from Column A and a piece from Column B, you are uniformed!

Students in violation of dress code will be asked to contact a parent in order to provide appropriate clothing. If a parent cannot be contacted, children will be asked to change into a uniform from our Cougie Uniform Recycle Shop. After three infractions of the code per semester, students may be excluded from special activities or events. 

As your child grows throughout the school year it becomes more difficult to find uniforms in the stores. For your convenience, we do have a Cougie Uniform Recycle Shop on campus for even exchange of outgrown clothing.

All clothing, including jackets and sweatshirts, must be of appropriate length, size, and fit.  Navy sweat suits are acceptable to wear, however, we do suggest layering with a proper uniform underneath so the top layer may be removed once the temperature warms up. Jackets or sweatshirts should be hung up upon entering the classroom.

Cell Phones and Other Devices

Students with cell phones are expected to keep them in their backpacks at ALL times and follow the BYOD policy established by the school. Students may not use devices for personal use during the school day nor on the bus. The school and district is not responsible for lost, stolen, nor damaged devices.
