Failure to wear uniform:

If for any reason the student is not able to come to school in uniform, the parents must send a signed note with the student explaining the reason. “It’s in the laundry” is not acceptable as an excuse.
In all other cases, the student will not be allowed to attend classes without proper uniform. Parents will be notified by phone to solve the situation. Children may either be taken home for the change or the uniform can be brought to school.
