Uniform

The Calverton School Uniform
One of the key principles of the Calverton experience is respect–respect toward learning, toward each other, and to oneself. As an extension of this principle, we ask that students and adults come to school dressed in a respectful manner. In other words, we respect our school community by appearing ‘neat and appropriate.’ The adults in the community will abide by professional dress, and we ask students to abide by the following uniform. In this regard, shirts should be tucked in, belts should be worn when needed, undergarments must not be visible and outdoor or over-sized clothing should not be worn inside the School. Uniforms should be ordered from Lands End or Dennis Uniform.


Cougar Cubs 3K and 4K

3K and 4K students should come to school in comfortable, “user-friendly” clothing that can get messy. Tennis shoes should be worn every day, no tie shoes. 3K and 4K students should also have one pair or rain boots to keep at school. You will also want to purchase a rain coat with hood to be worn to school on rainy days, but this may be kept at home and sent in as needed.

  • No uniform required for 3K.
  • Uniform is optional for 4K.
