All Tyler students are expected to be in uniform every day. Tyler’s uniform consists of a light yellow top and navy blue bottom. Yellow tops can be a collared shirt or blouse or a Tyler T-shirt (yellow or blue). Acceptable navy bottoms include pants, skirts, or shorts of appropriate length. Navy blue jumpers are also acceptable. Current Tyler families have found reasonable everyday prices or great sales at stores/websites like JCPenney, Target, Burlington, Lands’ End, Kids for Less, and FrenchToast.
Shoes should be comfortable and have closed toes and soles like sneakers/tennis shoes. Sandals and shoes like Crocs can inhibit physical activity and can be a safety hazard.
In general, students are expected to dress appropriately. Parents and guardians are asked to monitor that students do not come to school in dress that tends to disrupt the class, contribute to a safety hazard, or is not appropriate for the weather. When these guidelines are not followed, parents will be called to bring a change of clothing. The following are violations of the dress code policy:
- T-shirts with vulgar messages;
- Tank/Halter tops;
- Inappropriate make-up;
- Hats, scarves, and bandanas, other than appropriate winter wear;
- Revealing or provocative clothing;
- Clothing that exposes one’s stomach;
- Tight-fitting/Stretch pants; and
- Excessive and/or expensive jewelry.
Please assist us in upholding a high standard for our students in both appearance and contribution to the learning environment. Our school uniform helps to provide the educational ethic that becomes the foundation of their academic success and future career success.
Please donate gently used uniform clothing for the uniform exchange. Items should be clean and in good condition (no stains or rips). Items accepted include shirts, pants, shorts, skirts, jumpers, and sweaters.
