DRESS FOR SUCCESS

We are proud of our well-dressed students! Cleanliness, good grooming, neatness and modesty are important standards of appearance for everyone. MWGCS students are expected to wear appropriate dress at all times.

Students at Montessori of Winter Garden Charter School wear school uniforms consisting of:

  • Solid White, Navy, Hunter/ Forest Green or Orange polo type shirt.
  • Solid Beige or Navy shorts, pants, skorts or jumpers (fingertip hemline is required).
  • These may be purchased anywhere, school logo shirts are not required but are available to be purchased from Lands’ End at www.landsend.com.
  • On Worthwhile Wednesdays (with a donation to that month’s chosen cause) a school spirit t-shirt can be worn with jeans, jean skirts or jean shorts.
  • Every Friday school spirit t-shirts may be worn with jeans, jean skirts or jean shorts.

If a student is unable to purchase a school shirt the parent may write a request to the PTO or Executive Director for a shirt donation.

  • Please dress your child in comfortable, safe shoes (closed toe) with socks each day.
    • If jewelry is worn, please ensure it is not distracting and safe for the classroom.

Cold Weather Clothing:

  • Solid White, Navy, Hunter/ Forest Green or Orange long-sleeve polo shirts or sweaters.
  • Layers under the uniform must be in solid school colors.

Leggings and tights must be in solid school colors or neutrals (black, khaki, navy, white, cream, forest green, orange or grey). Socks are at the student's discretion.

Facial jewelry is not allowed. Tennis shoes are recommended for physical education classes; socks are highly desirable.

Financial Considerations/Assistance Students will not be denied attendance at school or be otherwise penalized for failing to wear clothing that complies with the school uniform if such failure is due to financial hardship. Parents/guardians should notify the Executive Director if assistance is needed. The Executive Director shall develop procedures to offer assistance to students who would have or are having difficulty complying with the school uniform policy due to financial hardships and shall develop a program to provide for uniform donations or uniform clothing.

Discipline The Executive Director or designee has the authority to decide if clothing complies with Board policy. If the Executive Director determines that a student’s clothing does not comply with Board policy, a parent/guardian may be asked to bring an appropriate change of clothes to school, or the student may be asked to leave an after-school activity. The student may also receive a disciplinary consequence for not following the school’s dress code policy. Repeated violations may result in progressively more serious consequences. Students may appeal the Executive Director’s decision to the Board President.
