DRESS AND UNIFORMS
The objective of a uniform and dress code is to eliminate issues of clothing from the social and disciplinary agenda and to allow students to concentrate on matters of greater relevance. Hence, we do not plan to argue over uniforms with students or families. It is simply a requirement for attending Palm Valley School.
Families must purchase appropriate uniform items from either our supplier, Norman’s Uniforms or through our on-campus Firebird Spirit Store (who also sell Used Uniform items). Although they are not located in this area, Norman’s brings inventory here for several weekends at the end of summer, at the beginning of School, and throughout the School year. They will also ship items to your door through phone orders (310-832-8342) and online orders at www.normansuniforms.com The online password for our school is: 35525
In addition to wearing appropriate uniforms for designated school days and special events, students are expected to be neatly groomed at all times. Parents and families are asked to help in carrying out this policy by seeing their children are properly attired when they leave home each morning. If you question that their daily attire may violate policy, send them with clothing that you know will be acceptable so they may change if cited. All students (P-12) are allowed to wear PVS spirit shirts on Fridays, as long as they have been purchased through the Firebird Spirit Store, with the school uniform shorts, pants, skirts or shorts. Special dress up days when items other than standard school uniforms are allowed will be well communicated to all families. All items of clothing should be labeled with their owner’s name. Lost articles are kept in the office area, and those that remain unclaimed are periodically disposed of.
