The uniform policy at Imagine Prep Coolidge has been designed to keep a uniform atmosphere that encourages learning by removing unnecessary distractions. Each family that accepts enrollment in the school also accepts the dress code as mandatory. If there is a change in the dress code for a field trip or special event, parents/guardians will be notified of the change prior to the day of the event. Otherwise, the dress code must be followed at all times
We rely on parents to reinforce our uniform policy. The following guidelines for our uniform policy will be strictly enforced beginning the first day of school.
- 6th- 8th Grade—Navy, White, or Red polo shirts (Imagine polo shirts are permitted)
- 9th-12th Grade—Maroon, Gray, or Black polo shirts (Imagine polo shirts are permitted)
- Imagine purchased t-shirts may be worn on designated days only
- Solid Navy, Khaki, or Black pants, slacks, skirts, shorts with no embellishments/designs
- Sweatpants, leggings, and blue denim are not permitted
- Sweaters, jackets, or sweatshirts must be a solid color and free from logos
- College and university names and Imagine logo outerwear and hoodie are permitted
- Hoods may not be worn during school hour
Students must wear close-toed shoes at all times. Shoes that resemble “house slippers”, slides or sandals are not permitted.
HATS & HEADGEAR
Hats or headgear of any kind are not permitted in the building and are not to be worn on belt loops or bags. Bandanas are not permitted on campus. A “bad hair day” or “bad haircut” are not acceptable reasons to wear a hat or hood.
ACCESSORIES AND AFFILIATIONS
Clothing which interferes with the educational setting or is associated with gang affiliation is prohibited. Gang related personalization is not permitted on clothing or property. All accessories must be free of inappropriate insignias and/or logos. Belts hanging from the pant loops, nylon skull caps, do-rags and bandanas are prohibited as well as any simulation of anything representing “colors.”
GUIDELINES AND CONSEQUENCES
All students are required to wear their school uniforms while on campus, including before and after-school. Students staying after-school for tutoring, practice, or other extra-curricular activities must wear their school uniform until directed to change by a coach or coordinator (15 minutes before practice start time). In addition to the above guidelines, students who are involved in extra-curricular activities such as athletics, band, choir, etc. are subject to the standards of dress as defined by the sponsors of such activities.
All students are expected to adhere to the standard of dress guidelines while on campus or while attending an off campus school sponsored activity. All final decisions regarding appropriateness of the uniform, headwear, shoes, or appearance in general, are left to the discretion of the administration (Principal, Assistant Principal, and Director Climate and Culture).
Students who violate the dress code policy will call a parent for a change of clothing and may be assigned in-school suspension. Repeated offenses will be considered insubordination and grounds for suspension.
This dress code will be strictly enforced each day of school
