Uniforms

Uniforms

Our main priority at Chavez Schools is to provide your scholar with a safe and positive learning experience. We work each day to encourage scholars to be successful at their job of learning. We ask that you do the same by supporting our standardized dress code (school uniform) which has a few changes for the upcoming school year.

Chavez Schools strongly believes that standard dress has a positive impact on every scholars learning and behavior in and around school, serves to unite scholars, increases school pride and eliminates any barriers that may develop when some scholars cannot afford expensive name-brand clothing.

Every Chavez scholar is expected to participate in standard dress. If for religious reasons a scholar needs accommodations to the standard dress, please contact your campus administrator.

The Chavez school uniform vendor is Risse Brothers. Chavez will be hosting a uniform roadshow at each campus. Please see the enclosed flyer for details.

Scholar Dress Down Days:
There are NO regularly scheduled dress down days. Dress down days are given as rewards for specific actions by the scholars and will be announced to parents/guardians, in a phone message and posted on the website when assigned. Parents/guardians should not permit scholars to attend school out of uniform, unless you have been informed by the school through one of these methods.

Should you have any questions regarding the uniform please contact the Director of Student Recruitment and Parent Engagement, Ms. Desirée Brown at desiree.brown@chavezschools.org.

Thank you for your support of the updated Chavez Schools Uniform.
