Student Uniform Policy

School Uniforms

Pursuant to the rules of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, John I. Smith K-8 Center has met the requirements of the mandatory school uniform policy.  Therefore, all students are required to wear the approved uniform, which has been selected by the school uniform committee.  Please contact the office or classroom teacher for more information.  In addition to the mandated uniform, closed shores are to be worn to avoid injuries.  Jeans are NOT part of the school uniform.

Parents or guardians may request an exemption from the mandatory uniform program by obtaining an application for exemption from the school office, either in person or by a letter to the principal.  Please contact the school office for an exemption application.  Each Friday (or the last day of the school week) we celebrate Spirit Day at John I. Smith K-8 Center.  On this day, students and staff may wear the school colors, T-shirts, and jeans.  We feel that this is a fun, casual way to end the week, however we must, at the same time, continue to adhere to the Miami-Dade County Public School Board’s dress code which prohibits written messages, pictures, or symbols on clothing which portray ideas which are harmful to the health, safety and welfare of students.  Tube tops, see-through blouses, bare backs, bare midriffs, and sleeveless undershirts (tank tops) are also inappropriate for Spirit Day.
