All students in grades Kindergarten through Six are required to wear school uniforms Monday through Thursday. This policy was approved by the SCC (School Community Council) following extensive discussion and data collection. It was decided that school uniforms would have a positive effect on the school-learning environment as well as raise the standard of dress for all students. Uniforms should be clean and well fitted and follow our Standard Dress Code Policy.
School uniforms consist of our Pearl Harbor Elementary School T-Shirt or Polo Shirt and bottoms that follow our Standard Dress Code. School Shirts can be purchased in the school's administration office.
Pearl Harbor Elementary School's uniform consists of the following:
- Uniform Shirt: Polo shirt with embroidered school logo
- Pearl Harbor Elementary School Logo T-Shirt
- Uniform Bottoms: navy blue, black, gray and khaki pants/shorts/ skirts/skorts/jumpers/denim shorts or pants

WAIVER: (B.O.E. Guideline)
Parents wishing to exempt their student from the uniform policy may "opt-out" by requesting the Application for Exemption form available in the school office. Parents should (1) return the completed forms to the office (2) meet with the Principal or Vice-Principal to discuss the student uniform policy and nature of the objection; and (3) review the acceptable student attire. Exemptions are valid only for the current school year and must be renewed at the beginning of each school year.
