Uniform

One of the key principles of the Calverton experience is respect – respect for learning, for each other, and for 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 dress professionally, and we also ask that students appear neat and appropriately dressed during the school day and while on campus. In this regard, shirts should be tucked in, belts should be worn, and undergarments should not be visible. Athletic jackets and outdoor or oversized clothing should not be worn inside the school. We require that you purchase your uniforms from Dennis Uniforms

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.
