Uniform Policy

All students are expected to wear neat and clean clothing every day and be in uniform Monday through Friday of each week. The uniform for Smothers Elementary School consists of khaki bottoms (shorts, pants, skirts or jumpers) and white or red (blouses or polo-style shirts). Closed-toe shoes appropriate for PE and playground activity are required every day. Blue jeans, t-shirts, athletic pants, and hooded jackets are not part of the Smothers uniform. Likewise, jackets, coats, bandanas, non-prescriptive eyeglasses, sunglasses, and hats are not to be worn during the school day. On designated days, students have the privilege of coming to school out of uniform. However, extremes in style, fit, and grooming, as determined by the principal, will not be permitted, including, but not limited to, clothing that exposes armpits, bare backs or midriffs, see-through clothing, open-toed shoes, and shoes with heels. Parents will be contacted and asked to bring compliant clothing if a student reports to school out of uniform. Smothers seeks to create a uniform bank and welcomes donations of used,outgrown uniforms throughout the school year.

2408.13-15 of District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR) permits the application of consequences for students who continuously violate the uniform policy. However, every effort will be made to ensure that students are properly outfitted in school apparel.
