Uniform Policy

Uniform Policy 

Martin Luther King, Jr. Charter School of Excellence has a uniform policy that requires students to come to school in uniform at all times, except on scheduled non-uniform days or when permission is granted by the administration for extenuating circumstances.

Research shows that school uniforms support a safe and effective learning environment. Students who are safe and secure are better able to learn and exemplify the essentials of good citizenship.

Uniforms instill pride in the school and give each child a feeling of being part of the school community.  They also help eliminate peer pressure.

It is for these reasons that Martin Luther King, Jr. Charter School of Excellence has a uniform policy requiring students to come to school in uniform at all times, Furthermore, uniforms are more cost efficient per family than purchasing multiple outfits for school wear. 

All students are expected to wear uniforms all year long including the first day of school. Non-logo school uniform items can be purchased at local stores such as Old Navy, Target, Sears, J.C. Penney, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s and Burlington Coat Factory.  Our new uniform logo shirts/micro fleece jacket can be purchased through Faith Creative Names by calling 518-772-1148 / 518-364-2849. Order forms can be requested from the school office.
