Uniform Policy

The goal of Providence Classical School’s dress code is that students present themselves in a clean and neat manner as a representation of our school. While we recognize the uniqueness of each student and seek to develop individuality, it is also important for each student to understand the concept of appropriate dress for particular situations. With a consistent uniform policy, we hope to place the emphasis on academics and the formation of Christ-like character.

The 2020-21 school year will be a transition year as we move toward allowing only items listed on our school page at Frenchtoast.com. We will require the dress uniform listed below from French Toast at the start of the new school year and ask that all new uniform purchases be items from our school page at Frenchtoast.com. However, in an effort to ease the financial burden, we are allowing clothing items for the 2020-21 school year that look similar in cut, color, length, and fit to those listed on our school page at Frenchtoast.com. We hope this will allow families to get another year’s use out of items they may have already purchased, while moving us toward our goal of a more consistent and simplified uniform policy.

We ask that all students have a mask while at school, though their use in the classroom is recommended but not required. As guidelines dictate, masks may be required in the hallways or upon entrance/exit from the school. Masks should be solid, conservative colors without logos. Solid, muted colors are acceptable. Bright and distracting colors, logos, and patterns should be avoided. Please write your child’s initials inside the mask.

Outer Wear and Shoes:
PCS sweatshirts, hoodies, or zippered jackets may be worn over uniforms and are the only outer wear that may be worn inside the building for students in grades 3 and higher. Hoods may not be worn over the head inside the building. Due to sizing issues with our spirit wear, students in grades K-2 are also permitted to wear the French Toast cardigans listed on our school page at Frenchtoast.com. Students must wear tennis shoes, dress shoes, or other casual, close-toed shoes with the school uniform. Shoes must be completely enclosed. No Crocs, sandals, or heels please. Boots may only be worn with scooters or pants, and pants should not be tucked in if boots are worn.

Hats may not be worn inside the building.
Pants, shorts, and scooters should be made of woven, non-athletic material and consistent with the material of our school items from Frenchtoast.com.
