District-wide School Uniform Implementation
With the start of the new year, we will see another change in the Hawthorne School District. . . school uniforms at all eleven of our school sites. While many of our schools have had a uniform dress policy in place for several years, we are expanding the practice to all of our schools. Each school has gone through the process of working with their School Site Councils to make a recommendation to the Hawthorne School District Board of Trustees for adoption and implementation on January 11, 2016.
The schools that will see the implementation in January 2016 include: Kornblum Elementary, Ramona Elementary, Bud Carson Middle School, Hawthorne Middle School, and Prairie Vista Middle School. We have held multiple parent meetings to inform the community of the upcoming change. The uniforms include a solid color collared shirt with a twill fabric bottom. In an attempt to make the acquisition of uniforms as simple as possible we have kept the requirements very basic.
School uniforms will assist staff in identifying students who belong on campus and helps to identify our students when out in the community. Uniforms help to establish a safe and productive culture at a school and we look forward to very positive outcomes with our implementation.
If you have any questions regarding uniforms please contact your school office for further information. I would like to wish the entire Hawthorne Community a very Happy New Year and look forward to another exciting year in 2016!
