    A few important Notes about our STEAM Middle Uniform:

    • We have 2 approved outerwear options (cardigans and blazers).   These are the only approved uniform outerwear pieces.  We will have a blazer day every Wednesday beginning on September 14.  Uniform violations are given on blazer days to students that do not wear their blazer.  Students may wear their STEAM cardigan or blazer any other day of the week.  Coats, jackets, hoodies, etc… will be put away during the school day.

    • Hats, head coverings and hoods are not approved with the STEAM Middle uniform, but may be worn for religious practices followed by individual scholars and their families, on dress down/spirit wear days, or with special permission from Dr. Ries.

    • Scholars or families seeking uniform assistance may email kwilliams2@fergflor.org.

    UNIFORM VIOLATION CONSEQUENCES

    • 1st and 2nd violation – Teacher to have a conversation with student and email sent to parents from office.

    • 3rd violation – Teacher to have a conversation with student and phone call home to parents from office. 

    • 4th violation – lunch detention assigned by Dr. Ries. 

    • Future violations will be considered an act of insubordination and will be handled as such in accordance with the Ferguson-Florissant School District Student Expectation Code.

     

    Special non-uniform days will be scheduled throughout the year and will be available as spirit days and rewards for accomplishments.
