CONSEQUENCES FOR UNIFORM/DRESS VIOLATIONS:

Elementary uniform violations will result in loss of recess time.

In middle school, an infraction will be issued for each uniform/dress violation.

No manner of student appearance will be considered proper for school that detracts from or disrupts the classroom and/or school decorum.  The Head of School or Director of Middle School shall make the final decision of what is considered proper or improper appearance.

In the instance of a school dress violation, students may be asked to leave the classroom until proper clothing is obtained.

FBCS has a designated uniform which can be purchased at Shreveport Gymnastics, 4727 Line Avenue, 869-1206, or at Sports World at 8809 Jewella Avenue, 686-1880.
