To help create an environment conducive to learning, all students at Riverbend Prep are required to wear uniforms. This policy is designed in order to allow students to focus their attention on academics. To ensure that the school’s uniform policy has its desired effect, it is important that it be implemented consistently. School leaders, faculty, and staff strictly enforce this policy and will respond immediately to violations of the policy.
Students should exhibit good taste, personal hygiene, and personal pride through good grooming and dress habits. It is the policy of this school that all students are expected to be neat, clean, and appropriately dressed.
Both girls and boys may wear navy blue or baby blue polo shirts. Uniform shirts must be tucked in at all times and clean. Navy blue sweatshirts are permitted.
