Dress Code

  • No Uniforms This Year!!

    We have changed the dress code policy at Irving Elementary School. Students will NOT be required to wear a school uniform for the 2021-22 school year. We will continue to follow the District 60 dress code policy. Students can still choose to wear their school uniforms if they wish. We will also continue to have some spirit days that will include wearing a school shirt.

    Disclaimer: Irving leadership may question other uniform options that interfere with learning.  In that case, they will contact the parent to discuss the issues.

    *It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian and student to read the district’s dress code policy (See SC&DC File: JICA) and to know what it is.

    If your student is unable to meet the uniform requirement on any day, please contact the office that morning at 549-7570.  If you are having trouble acquiring the necessary uniform, please contact our Community Advocate at 549-7570.

     

    All D60 students are expected to abide by the following general guidelines:

    Shirts must be long enough to naturally touch the top of the lower garment and/or be tucked in; shirts must cover the shoulders.
