Important Uniform Notes:

All parts of the uniform must be in good condition when worn to school. Ripped material, holes, visibly patched articles, and significantly faded clothing is not permitted. This includes shoes. Black belts must always be worn (boys and pants season for girls), and braided belts are not allowed. Students are not permitted on school grounds without wearing the school uniform in its entirety; this will be strictly enforced. As such, there are a few things to note.
