At Dudley School, it is our aim as educators to help in establishing and maintaining high expectations and standards in all areas including the area of student dress. The Camden City School District mandates that students wear school uniforms.
The appropriate uniform for Dudley school is as follows: White or Light Blue Polo shirt. The pants /skirts are to be Navy Blue or Khaki colored.
The most sensible guideline for parent(s)/guardian(s) to employ is that your child should always be neat, clean and dressed appropriately for the school setting and the weather conditions.
Parent(s)/guardian(s) should advise their children that certain clothing is in poor taste for the school setting. If there is any question in your mind about a particular type of clothing, more than likely it should not be worn to school.
On days that your child has physical education (PE), please have him or her wear clothing that can be easily cared for if soiled during PE class. Appropriate gym shoes should be worn.
Hats, caps, hoodies and bandannas are not to be worn in the building. For safety purposes, open back sandals and flip flops are not allowed. In our experience, far too many students have been injured wearing these types of footwear while running on the playground, climbing the playground equipment, climbing stairs and entering and exiting buses.
