The Bloomfield Board of Education believes that reasonable regulation of student attire in the schools furthers important educational interests. Accordingly, the Board has established a dress code for all students enrolled in the Bloomfield Public Schools.
Commencing with the 2008-2009 school year, uniforms will be mandatory for all students enrolled in the Bloomfield Public Schools in kindergarten up to and including grade 8. The designated uniform shall be as follows:
•a. Tops: Short- or long-sleeved collared (polo) shirts in either white or the designated color for the individual school the student attends. Shirts must be tucked into skirts or pants. Shirts with each school's logo may be purchased through the school, but shall not be required.
•i) For boys and girls: casual or dress pants sized to fit the student, of twill or corduroy, in solid khaki, navy or black only. All other types of pants, including but not limited to jeans, overalls, sweatpants, velour or other athletic pants, and tight fitting or sagging pants, are not permitted. From May through the end of October, students may wear shorts sized to fit the student, of twill or corduroy, in solid khaki, navy or black only.
•ii) For girls: skirts or jumpers that are not more than 3" above the middle of the knee (front and back), sized to fit the student, of twill or corduroy, in solid khaki, navy or black only, may be worn. Tight fitting skirts and/or jumpers are not permitted.
•c. Footwear: Dress shoes, sneakers or low cut boots only. Open toed shoes are not permitted.
•d. Sweaters: Khaki, navy, black or school colors. No sweatshirts.
•e. Exceptions for Physical Education classes and recess will be addressed in the student handbook by each school.
In order to maintain an environment conducive to the educational process, the Board of Education prohibits the following from wear during the academic school day at all schools:
a. Coats, jackets or other attire normally worn as outerwear. Outerwear includes: coats, jackets, windbreakers, nylon pullovers, down vests, and other clothing the administration deems inappropriate. Clothing or outer wear shall not be worn, carried or kept in the classroom during regular school hours.
b. Head coverings of any kind, including but not limited to scarves, bandanas, masks, headbands, visors, kerchiefs, athletic sweatbands, hats, caps or hoods. Approved coverings worn as part of a student's religious practice or belief shall not be prohibited under this policy. Head coverings shall not be worn, carried, hung on belts or around the neck or kept in the classroom during regular school hours.
c. Items a. and b. above, must be secured in the student's locker before school starts. Items not stored will be confiscated by Principal.
