School Uniforms
​Exceptions to the uniform policy will be allowed for those with strict religious beliefs regarding clothing as well as those participating in Boy or Girl Scouts or other national organizations, which have their own uniforms. Students are encouraged to represent these organizations on the day of their meetings by wearing the appropriate attire. 

If a student comes to school out of uniform, the following actions may take place:
A verbal warning may be given from a staff member to the student and/ or a note may be sent home.
Parent/guardian may be contacted and required to bring appropriate attire to school for the child. A conference may then be scheduled with the principal.
A letter or referral from the principal may be sent home requiring reply from the parent/guardian.

Willis Elementary School maintains a supply of gently used uniforms should a student have the need. If there is a need, please contact Mrs. Morales, our school counselor, at extension 2004. If you have uniforms you no longer need that are in good condition and would like to donate these to the school, please drop the uniforms off to the staff in the front office. 

If belts are worn, they should be fastened and should be black, brown, khaki, or navy in color.
