Send you're child in PJs to school...edited with link to handbook

Posted by   + Show Post
I totally agree. This would probably make alot of kids want to get themselves dressed, to escape embarrassment. Where I live, even the public schools are required to wear uniforms. They are very strict about this, down to socks must be white and belts can only be black or brown. Also, the school district here punishes the parents if rules are broken. Does your child have to wear s uniform? Is their school's dress code strict? Do they punish parents for insubordination?

Yup after reading that uniform policy my kids 100% would NOT be attending school there.  That is RIDICULOUS!!

Some schools here go as far as dictating what color shoe the child can wear

Yeah some of that is going too far.  May as well put them in private school with those types of dress code.  Our school does not have a dress code but i make sure dd wears age appropriate stuff.  She is 7 so it isnt too hard fo find plain solid color shirts, jeans, khakis, leggings to wear under a skirt/dress, etc.

Dd last school was the same, but here she has freedom and loves it

We have a uniform , but they are not super strict about it, at least not in kindergarten.

by Platinum Member on Apr. 19, 2013 at 6:53 PM

Well since the MAJORITY of Arizonians live in Phoenix and I KNOW that the majority of districts in the metro area do NOT have a uniform policy, then you are clearly mistaken.  Maybe you live in a rural area, but this is definitely NOT the case in Phoenix or Tuscon for that matter. Are there schools here and there that require uniforms!?  Sure, but it's definitely NOT a majority.  It's a very small minority.

Quoting Madisonsmommy1:

Umm Hun no ur wrong. My brothers n sister had uniforms n that was 10 yrs ago. All the schools around here have them. On the other side of town where we were living they have uniforms!

That is a blatant lie. One quick google search of the districts in Arizona and their school handbooks will clarify this. MOST schools in AZ do NOT have uniforms. There are only a handful of private schools and so the majority of schools are public.

My kids wear uniforms, but at certain times of the year they have pajama day.  They LOVE it!!!!  The teachers also join in and some of their pj's are just hilarious.   

Quoting FebPenguins:

We don't have uniform requirements here, in fact during the month of March they had a friday where they all wore pjs, even some of the teachers joined in the fun.
