As part of the Transformation Plan, the district is phasing in a new school dress code requiring all students to wear school uniforms. This year, elementary, K8, and middle school students are required to wear uniforms.
What are the requirements?
Tops: Collared shirts, vests, sweaters in navy blue, light blue, white, black, red, or orange (Ottawa Hills feeder schools)
Bottoms: Pants, shorts, dresses, and skirts in navy blue, black, or tan/khaki. Denim, sweatpants, and leggings are not permitted to be worn as pants.
As the first day of the 2014-15 school year approaches, please take a moment to use the following checklist to make sure your child is ready to begin a successful school year.
ü Enroll your child(ren). If you have not enrolled your child, please visit Student Information Systems at 1331 Franklin St SE. You will need to bring your child’s birth certificate, shot record, and proof of residency (example: utility bill, rent receipt, NOT a driver’s license, cell phone bill, or insurance bill).
ü Purchase school uniforms for any children in an elementary, K8 school, middle. Visit www.grps.org/uniforms for more information. Check out our preferred vendors: Screen Ideas, Meijer, Lands’ End, and Salvation Army.
ü Sign up for LOOP and LOFT after school programs. Sign-ups will be held in your child’s school.
