Dear Emerson Parents and Guardians,
As the weather warms up, it is very important that all students come to school wearing closed-toe shoes. Sandals, flip-flops, slides, or any other shoe without a closed toe are not only against our school’s uniform policy, as explained in the family handbook, but also increase risk of injury in a school building.
The following articles of clothing are also NOT in compliance with Emerson’s uniform policy:
- Shorts that are higher than the knee (knee-length khaki shorts are acceptable)
- Sun Dresses/Skirts (knee length khaki skirts are acceptable)
Parents/Guardians of students not in compliance with our uniform policy, especially in the areas mentioned above, will be contacted and required to bring appropriate clothing for their child.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. If you have any questions about our school’s uniform policy and expectations, please contact Emerson Parent Coordinator Darnell Childs at 718-657-4801 or MrChilds@theemersonschool.org.
