Dress Code

Children's dress and personal grooming are primarily the responsibility of the child and parent. Children are expected to come to school with proper attention given to personal cleanliness, grooming and neatness of dress. Children whose clothing or jewelry distract from the learning environment (advertising, alcohol, tobacco, profane language) or might be hazardous (jewelry with sharp edges) may be sent home to change. Flip-flops, sandals, platform shoes, or high heels should not be worn to school, as they are not safe. Due to the safety of our children, children wearing shoes that are unsafe for physical education activities and recess may not be allowed to participate.

The school district emphasizes and Sherwood Elementary request that children should wear athletic shoes during Physical Education classes and recess.
