Valley Presbyterian School requires students to wear a school uniform as part of their school experience. Please adhere to the specific uniform guidelines for shirts, pants, etc. available in the office.
When a class earns a “free dress day” or a “free dress week”, students may wear non-uniform clothing. However, students must still observe the general dress code with safety and modesty in mind. Please wear socks and tennis shoes. Jeans and shorts are permitted but may not have holes or be too tight. “Short shorts” are not permitted. Shorts for girls and boys must be at a mid-thigh (just above the knee) length. T-shirts may not have inappropriate sayings or designs. Skorts or skirts must be at a mid-thigh length. Skirts MUST have shorts worn beneath them. Clothing should always be Christ honoring! No tank tops, muscle shirts or blouses with spaghetti straps are allowed unless an additional garment is worn beneath it.
We honor our country and those who serve in our military on the FIRST Friday of every month. Each class takes a turn presenting a small program for the entire school on the playground at 8:30a.m. Students may wear polo shirts in patriotic colors (red, white, or blue) and T-shirts with a patriotic theme. Uniform pants and/or skorts, etc. must be worn with the patriotic shirt.
Students in 6th Grade ONLY may wear jeans on Fridays with their uniform polo or a V.P.S. T-shirt. No short shorts are allowed-only longer style shorts.
ALL students may wear a V.P.S. T-shirt or any color polo shirt on Friday/Spirit days. Uniform bottoms are required on these days (grades Kindergarten – 5th grades).
Each year, new dress styles and fad accessories emerge into society. Therefore, the Administration and faculty reserve the right to evaluate any mode of dress that, in their estimation, inhibits the philosophy, purpose, and goals of Valley Presbyterian School, the educational process, or threatens the safety and protection of all students as unacceptable.
Valley Presbyterian School desires to give grace and understanding when observing violations especially in the first two weeks of the school year. Therefore, children and/or parents may receive a warning (written or verbal) prior to the issuing of a dress referral notice. Parents may also be asked to bring a change of clothing to their students, or the student may be taken home to change clothing. Three dress referrals in a trimester will result in a detention. Repeated lack of adherence to the dress code will result in a parental meeting with the Administration.
