School Uniform & Dress Code Updates


Mandatory School Uniforms for all Baldwin County Students

School uniforms help to boost a child's self-esteem and encourage the main focus in the classroom to be on education and not fashion. The potential benefits of school uniforms include instilling discipline, helping students resist peer pressure, and helping school officials recognize intruders who come to the school. Students will be expected to wear uniforms Monday - Friday. Principals may occasionally allow a dress down day on Friday.

We recognize the students right to express individuality must be balanced with the need to create a positive learning environment with minimal distractions. Good grooming and appropriate dress have a positive impact on student achievement and conduct. Our uniform policy is designed to encourage academic focus, minimize disruption and to teach students the importance of dressing for success. Appropriate dress is expected of all students. The uniform policy shall be enforced at all times while on school grounds unless otherwise approved by an administrator.

Below you will find a detailed list of the approved school uniforms for elementary, middle and high school students.
