School Uniforms

There are 10 BCSD schools with a mandatory school uniform policy. Each school has a designated school uniform coordinator to provide you with information and to answer any questions you may have about school uniforms. Although each school has specific uniform colors, white shirts and navy or khaki pants, jumpers, skirts, skorts (culottes) or shorts are standard colors across the District. The schools are able to assist families in need by working with community agencies that will help provide school uniforms.

The following is a basic outline. Please call your child’s school for further details. Each school’s uniform guidelines are more extensive.

Schools have also specified:

  • Shirts must be tucked in
  • No logos or pictures on clothing (other than the school’s logo)
  • No torn clothing
  • Clothing must be neat and clean
  • No baggy clothing
  • Clothing must not be more than one size too large or one size too small
  • ALL CLOTHING MUST BE IN SOLID COLORS except where the school logo or school plaid is specified
  • Students will be allowed to wear their school’s team shirts, school T-shirts, scout and campfire uniforms, etc.
