Dress Code

Avondale Meadows Academy students are young professionals who are learning the habits of adult professionals, including the habits of professional dress. Full school uniforms must be worn at all times. Parents will be informed if their child is out of uniform, and will be asked to bring the proper uniform to the school immediately. If this is not possible, the student will be required to wear a substitute uniform (if available) and/or will receive a uniform violation.

Why do you have a dress code?

Our dress code is a part of the process for preparing students to be productive and contributing citizens. Just as AMA has a dress code for its staff, most jobs and workplaces have a dress code for their employees. If employees come to work out of dress code, they are often sent home to change. AMA approaches its dress code in the same way.

What if my child is out of dress code?

Parents will be informed if their child is out of dress code, and will be asked to bring the proper clothing to school immediately. If this is not possible, then the student will be required to wear substitute clothing, stay in the office, or will be sent home depending on the amount of dress codes infractions the student has received.
