Uniform Policy

 
P.S. 119 UNIFORM DRESS CODE 

 

The P.S. 119 School Leadership Team and Parent Association continue to support a Uniform Dress Code. Dress codes encourage discipline, school pride and unity; and keep clothing costs and competitiveness to a minimum.


 
The uniform consists of:

  • Solid colored dress shirts, turtle necks, polo shirts and sweaters; (no graphics or advertising)
  • Solid colored slacks, corduroys, jumpers or skirts; (no jeans)
  • Light soled sneakers or shoes. 

Clothing may be purchased wherever you choose.  It is not necessary to shop at a specialized uniform store. 

On rainy days, ponchos with hoods are preferred over umbrellas. Ponchos keep children and backpacks dry.
