    Fort Washington Forest Elementary School
    Uniform Dress Code

        Below you will find the official dress code for our school.  School uniform clothing items and shoes may be purchased at the following: Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, JC Penny's, Sears, military exchanges, most area shoe departments, discount stores and local uniform shops.

        Fort Washington Forest Elementary adopted a mandatory uniform dress code which was implemented
    the first day of the 2002-2003 school year. All students are expected to wear school uniforms to school every day. Please note that students will be expected to come to school with attention given to personal cleanliness, grooming and neatness of dress. A committee of parents, teachers, and students developed the Uniform Dress Code. It will be strictly enforced during the school year.  Please contact the school if you need the procedures and exceptions regarding legitimate religious attire.


    UNIFORMS ARE REQUIRED EVERY DAY THAT SCHOOL IS IN SESSION.....NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!

    There will be NO regularly scheduled non-uniform days.  The only exception would be for a special activity such as performances held during the school day that would require the students to wear clothing other than the uniform or as incentives that have been earned.  If students will be allowed
    to wear clothing other than the uniform for any reason, a letter will come home to the parents prior to the scheduled date.  In this instance, students would be required to abide by the dress code of Prince George's County Public School as outlined below.
