pride, professionalism, academics, and safety.

We require our scholars to wear uniforms for four reasons:

 
 

Pride

We are proud to be Willow scholars and let the community know who we are at a glance with our uniforms.

 

Professionalism

Willow scholars spend a lot of time in their community, and we regularly invite the community into our school.  Uniforms help reinforce a sense of professionalism in and out of the school building.

 

Academics

We believe Willow scholars should focus on their academic journey and not on their own or their peers’ clothing styles. Uniforms help us all keep the focus where it belongs.

 

Safety

Willow has several types of learning spaces, including classrooms, the garden, and the kitchen. Willow scholars also experience movement and physical activity throughout the day, not just during specific times. Uniforms help keep us all physically safe.

We recognize that purchasing uniforms can be expensive and that confusing guidelines can make buying school clothes difficult. We have simple and clear guidelines, and any clothing available through Willow Public School will be inexpensive and easy to purchase.

Willow scholars will not be scrutinized, shamed, or sent home for uniform violations. If a scholar comes to school out of uniform a staff member will talk with the scholar about the uniform and the reasons we wear them. Staff will contact parents to let them know about the conversation and offer any needed help to make sure the scholar is in uniform.
