Uniform Dress Code


At Manatee Elementary we have a uniform dress code policy. The policy was implemented by our School Advisory Council (SAC) several years ago to set guidelines for students which creates an atmosphere that fosters learning without fashion distractions and safety hazards. Please contact the front office if you need assistance with obtaining dress code items.

Tops - Solid collared/polo type shirts in any color. Logos on shirts may not be larger than 2 inches in diameter.

Manatee Logo t-shirts - Authorized Manatee School t-shirts to include navy, teal and purple P.E. t-shirts, pink anti-bully t-shirts, and million word readers t-shirts. These t-shirts can be purchased from Manatee Elementary’s PTA. Students are strongly encouraged to wear collard, polo shirts for all school days, with the exception of P.E. days. However, an authorized Manatee School t-shirt is also an acceptable uniform alternative on non-P.E. days, and will not be considered a violation of this dress code.

- Solid (free from decorations) dress code colors may be worn over the collared shirts.

Bottoms - Pants, capris, shorts, skirts, and skorts (solid khaki, navy, black)

- (solid navy or khaki) and Polo Dresses (solid navy)

Jackets - Solid jackets in dress code colors and free from decorations may be worn over dress code approved tops and t-shirts.

Footwear - All footwear must be close-toed and close-heeled for safety reasons.

The following apparel is not permitted - tank tops, spaghetti straps, tight clothing, midriff-baring, muscle shirts, short shorts, short skirts, short skorts, denim, jeans, jeggings or leggings, flip flops, open toed or platform shoes.
