Dear Parent/Guardian:

As you know, Jefferson Elementary has a school uniform policy.  When we resume our new school year on August 21, 2019, all students will be required to follow the uniform dress policy on a daily basis.

Listed below are the required elements of the Uniform Policy:

sample of uniform shirts
Shirt- Collared shirts are required (polo style is acceptable) and can be long or short sleeve.  There is no requirement for the shirts to have a school logo or name.  Shirt colors are white, blue or light blue. 

Sample of pantsSample of khaki pants
Pants/Shorts/Skirts/Skorts- Navy blue, khaki, or black.  Denim or jean pants are NOT included.

Shoes/Belts- There are no specific required colors or styles. 

School Logo Wear- Our school has developed t-shirts and sweatshirts with our school logo.  These items can be substituted for the collared shirts or other appropriate garment.

Please note, that families are not required to purchase these items at any particular store or retailer.  All of the items noted above, except for the logo wear, can be purchased at a number retail outlets in Hawthorne and surrounding cities. 

We find that the school uniform is a very economical choice for families.

Students and families not wishing for their child to participate in the school uniform policy may contact the school office and discuss the possibility of applying for a uniform waiver.  If the waiver is granted, students will be required to follow the Hawthorne School District Dress Code.  Copies of this policy may be found in the Rights and Responsibilities booklet, the school office and on the District’s website at
