Greetings Parents and Guardians, Our number one job at I.S. 349 is provide your child with the best positive learning experience in a safe environment. We work each day to encourage students to be successful at their job of learning. We ask that you do the same by supporting our standardized dress code policy (school uniforms). Uniforms are an important part of the school’s identity: It has a positive impact on students’ learning and behavior in and around the school, serves to unite students, increases student pride, and eliminates barriers where all students are treated equally.
In addition, school uniforms offer many benefits to young students. Uniforms promote greater school spirit. Having pride in one’s school can be a powerful motivator. Most schools with uniform policies see improvements with their student’s schoolwork. Teachers have said that uniforms make it easier for the school’s staff to spot intruders, improving student safety. Thank you in advance for your support.
