Uniforms and Dress Code
ECS students are expected to maintain a neat appearance, dressing in a manner that is safe and comfortable for the activities of a school day, as well as respectful of themselves and others. Modesty should be maintained at all times. Clothing and appearance should never be a distraction to the learning environment. Full Dress Code Handout
Preschool Dress Code
Preschool children are not required to wear the school uniform, but we DO ask that children be dressed with the intention of having fun! All students should have a change of clothes in their backpacks in case of extreme messiness or accidents. Shoes must be worn at all times. We recommend sneakers/tennis shoes that are conducive to running and outdoor play. Please, no slide-on sandals or flip-flops. Remember to send a hooded jacket in bad weather, as we will usually have some type of outdoor activity, rain or shine.
Elementary and Middle School Dress Code
ECS maintains an official “Chapel” Uniform along with a Standard Dress Uniform. All students are expected to be in Chapel Uniform or Standard Dress Uniform while at school or at off-campus school events. Students are expected to be in Chapel Uniform on Mondays for Chapel. However, if a school holiday falls on a Monday, students are expected to wear their Chapel Uniform on Tuesday.
P.E. Uniform (Grades 6-8):
- Plain navy or white T-shirt (please label all clothing)
- Navy blue “ECS” shorts FROM DENNIS UNIFORM ONLY (Item# 006800-549) and/or plain navy blue sweat pants.
- Tennis shoes and white socks
Violations of the Dress Code will generally be handled by the classroom teacher with a warning call home and/or a request that a change of clothing be brought to school. Repeated violations of the Dress Code or personal appearance expectations will be referred to the Principal, who will employ progressive action to remedy the situation. The Principal or his/her designee reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of personal appearance and to make occasional exceptions.
