Proviso High School Students to Wear Shirts with School Logos
July 20, 2016 10:40 AM
The Proviso Township High Schools District 209 Board of Education approved several changes to the student uniform description at its July 2016 regular meeting, including a change that allows for wearing of polo shirts with logos purchased from either the school or an approved vendor. The district is currently in the process of identifying a vendor to provide student uniform items, especially polo shirts and other items with approved school logos.
The approved changes to the student uniform description also included the elimination of the white and black polo options. Students will be required students to wear polo shirts, cardigans, sweaters, sweatshirts, and fleece tops in their respective school colors (royal blue for Proviso East, red for Proviso West, and purple for PMSA) either without logos, or with a logo when purchased from the school or an approved vendor.
The district will transition to the shirts with the logos during the 2016-2017 school year, which begins on August 19 for freshmen and August 22 for all other students. Parents and students will be notified when a vendor has been approved and the new items are available for purchase.
All other aspects of the student uniform code, including students being required to wear khaki or black pants, shorts, or skirts, remain unchanged. This also includes the exceptions that are allowed such as cadets in the NJROTC program wearing their uniforms when designated by the instructors, student-athletes wearing their jerseys on jersey days as determined by the building principal, and on school spirit days on Fridays and during Homecoming Week when also determined by the building principal.
Students who are found out of compliance with the uniform description will be able to rent the necessary items to be in compliance at a cost of $2 per day.
It is expected that all polo shirts, cardigans, sweaters, sweatshirts, and fleece tops will have the approved school logos for the 2017-2018 school year.
