Dress Code Policy
A higher standard of dress encourages respect for individual students and others, and results in a higher standard of behavior. Our dress code guidelines indicate appropriate school dress for normal school days. The school reserves the right to interpret these guidelines and/or make changes during the school year. Students are expected to follow these guidelines. Every student shall wear school uni-forms. All school uniforms must be worn properly (no low hanging clothes).
The Galileo School uniform consists of a polo shirt (t-shirt options available for MS students only) with the Galileo School logo from Lands’ End. Pants, skirts, shorts, or skorts must be kha-ki/tan-colored.
Hair: No bandannas may be worn.
Shoes: Students must wear closed shoes at all times. Crocks, backless shoes, sandals, wheelies, open toed shoes and flip flops may not be worn.
Spirit Fridays: Students may wear their Galileo PTA shirts to school on Fridays with their khaki shorts, pants, skirts, or skorts. On Fridays only, students may wear jeans or jean shorts (mid-thigh length or longer) as an alternative to their khaki colored bottoms. On all other days, students must wear their polo shirts with the Galileo School logo and khaki colored bottoms.
Slacks/Shorts: All uniform slack/shorts must be khaki/tan-colored and be in good repair. No low hanging clothes allowed.
Dresses/Jumpers: Girls must wear shorts, leggings, or bloomersunder Galileo school logo dresses and jumpers.
Additional Dress Code guidelines: Middle School students who are participating on a Galileo sports team may wear the team jersey on game day in support of their team. For example, volleyball students may wear team jersey on Wednesdays with khaki bottoms and closed toe shoes. At no time, are students to wear anything offensive, immodest, or deemed inappropriate by the faculty. Students out of uniform will be given a written warning for the first offense. If the problem persists, parents will be called and required to bring the correct uniform to school before the child can return to class. A fund will be established to provide assistance to students unable to afforduniforms. Reasonable accommodations based on student’s religion, disability, or medical conditions will be allowed.
