Dress Code

Staff and students are expected to model proper examples of Islamic dress. To ensure modesty and a disciplined academic environment, all students will acquire and wear the necessary uniform items appropriate for their grade level. Students must remain in uniform at all times while on the school grounds, as well as during all field trips and other such school activities unless otherwise authorized by the administration and/or School Board. The school reserves the right to refuse admission into class and school to any student out of uniform. In addition, it is the school’s right to determine if an item being worn complies with uniform policy, including color of clothing (sweater, pants, jumper, socks, abaya/jalbab).  Students who fail to comply with uniform requirements are subject to disciplinary action. Students are expected to follow the uniform policy.  There will be no excuses as to why a student is not in correct uniform on a daily basis from the first day of school until the last day.  The uniform specifications are as follows:

General Uniform Guidelines:

Reminder: Parents are requested to write the student’s name on every uniform garment. Al Ihsan School is not responsible for any lost or stolen uniform items. Uniforms with illegible names or no name will be disposed of at the school’s discretion.

Cold Weather Days

In cold weather, if children wear heavy boots to school, they should be prepared to change into normal uniform shoes.  Clothing should be clearly labeled with the child’s name. Boots and winter clothing should be loose enough to allow the child to dress him/herself.  Students can bring a sweater to class, but nothing with a hood is allowed (regardless if it is a sweater).
