• School Uniform Policy

    BOYS: white short·or long sleeved knit polo shirt (no logo or ornamental collars), navy blue double knee slacks or navy blue pleated shorts, black belt (no embellishments), white or navy blue socks. Shoes must be mostly black (may have some white in them) or mostly white (may have some black in them) with matching shoelaces. There will not be any exceptions for other colors. (Strictly Enforced)

    Marlton will take orders in the fall and spring for the Marlton school navy blue t-shirt. These shirts may be worn on Fridays (school spirit day) ONLY instead of the white polo shirt. Ifwe do not have school on a Friday students are·not allowed to wear the Marlt?n t-shirt on Thursday.

    • Boys and girls shirt tails must be tucked into the waist of their slacks, shorts or skorts. Some students have shirts that are too long or short and this makes tucking them in difficult. Please check to make sure this is not a problem for your child. Uniform navy blue or white V-neck or cardigan sweaters are the only permissible outerwear over school uniforms while indoors. The sweaters can not have any insignias. The school will take orders in the fall for navy blue pullover sweatshirts with Marlton Elementary embossed on the front. This is the only sweatshirt that may be worn over the white polo shirt. Sweatshirts, sweaters made from sweatshirt material, windbreakers, jackets, or coats are unacceptable. If there is a heating/cooling emergency an exception will be made.
    • If your child is cold during the winter months they may layer their clothing provided the
    • under-layers are the same solid, white color as their uniform shirts. Solid colored, white long sleeves may be worn under the short-sleeved shirts. Long underwear may NOT be visible under any circumstances.
    • SHOES - Shoes must be mostly black (may have some white in them) or mostly white (may have some black in them) with matching shoelaces. There will not be any exceptions for other colors. (Strictly Enforced)
    • In the event of snowy or icy weather your child may choose to wear boots to school. If the boots are black or white, they will be permitted under long pants only (not with jumpers, skirts, or skorts). If they are another color, students are expected to change into their regular uniform shoes upon arrival at school. Parents are encouraged to label all outerwear (sweaters, sweatshirts, coats, hats, etc.) with their child's name. This procedure ensures the return of lost items. 
    • Jewelry-Any jewelry worn should be small and age appropriate. Earrings no larger than a dime. Students wearing large, cumbersome, dangly jewelry or accessories will be asked to remove said items for their safety. Fashion glasses are not allowed.

    NON-COMPLIANCE WITH UNIFORM POLICY

     First Violation - Scholar's teacher completes the uniform violation form to be sent home to the parents as an "official" notification. Parents are to sign and return to school the following school day.

     Second Violation- Scholar's teacher completes the 2nd uniform violation form and sends the student to the office. Parents are to sign and return to school the following school day. The Administration will contact the parents/guardians by phone and in writing that a 2nd violation has occurred.

     Third Violation-For the third, or repeated violations, parents/guardians will be contacted by the Principal.

    Repeated violations will be deemed as persistent disobedience or insubordination and will be dealt with in accordance with the Students Rights and Responsibilities Code.
