Uniform Policy

A neat, clean and professional image reduces distractions, promotes learning and creates a sense of camaraderie between all Memphis Street Academy Charter School scholars. We therefore ask all families to adhere to the following guidelines:

A scholar will always be neat, clean, and well-groomed. All parts of the uniform must be clean, pressed, and in good repair.

Ties, gym uniforms, plaid skirts, and blazers must be purchased from Cramer’s. Blazers will be mandatory beginning November 1, 2017. Last day for blazers will be May 7, 2018.

White button-down dress shirts, belts, and shoes (black shoes are preferred) may be purchased from other retailers.

No shirts may be visible under the school shirts. This includes the neckline and arms.

No shorts, leggings, or pants may be visible under the skirt.

All shirts and blouses are to be tucked in the scholar's pants or skirts.

Pants are to be secured at the waist with a belt.

Clothing should fit the scholar and may not be oversized.

The school patch must be affixed to the left breast of the blazer.

Scholars who do not wear the proper gym uniform will not participate in gym and will receive a failing grade for the day.

Scholars may not wear any visible jewelry other than stud earrings or small hoops (more than 2 inches in diameter).

Girls’ skirts must come to no less than two inches above the knee, and must not be so tight so as to be deemed inappropriate by school administration.

Shoes with inappropriate heels, and any type of boots or sandals are prohibited.
