Uniform/Dress Code Policy
The SABIS® system values each student for who they are-not by how they look or what they wear. Uniforms instill pride in the School and give each child a feeling of being part of the team. It helps to eliminate peer pressure. Uniforms are also more cost efficient in the long run. Any family having difficulty with the cost of the uniform should make an appointment with a school administrator.
The school has a uniform/dress code policy which requires students to arrive at school in uniform at all times. The most important element of the uniform/dress code policy is student compliance and parental support.
General Uniform Policy: Students are required to meet and follow SICS uniform policy. Ultimately, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to carefully plan and monitor his/her child’s attire prior to his/her arrival at school each morning. Should your child fail to meet any of the uniform standards below, a phone call shall be made home to review the uniform policy and to make arrangements for the appropriate uniform item(s) to be delivered to school. Students who fail to meet the uniform policy shall be subjected to disciplinary action.
