Neutral colors are preferred and less distracting for students. We encourage solid simple tennis shoes so students can play and exercise fully during PE and recess. If your child wears snow boots to school because of weather, please consider having them bring tennis shoes to change into when they get inside.
Not Allowed: Shoes with rollers or wheels or other distracting shoes.
Warm Clothing/Outerwear inside the School
Please note, this only applies to clothing items worn inside during school hours. We do not apply the dress code to items students only wear outside (coats, mittens, hats, etc.).

Allowed: fleece jackets, cardigans, sweaters, sweatshirts and vests (in school dress code solid colors) may be worn over the uniform top in class. A sweatshirt jacket with a hood (a.k.a. hoodie) is allowed as long as it follows the guidelines for "Tops" above. Students are NOT allowed to wear the hood indoors. If a student repeatedly wears the hood of a hoodie or hooded sweatshirt indoors they may no longer be allowed to wear hoodies in the school.
Not Allowed: heavy coats/jackets and raincoats are not to be worn in the classroom during the school day unless permitted by AXIS staff for special circumstances. No sweatshirts with graphics. No hoods, hats, or beanies may be worn indoors.

*** If masks are required per state mandate for the 2021-22 school year, the following will be applicable:
Masks: Mask-wearing will be required, but wearing times are differentiated by age to include the most important times (i.e. when social distancing is not possible). Masks should be as comfortable as possible and in non-distracting colors and prints. Please no characters. The Health Department has shared mask best practices include having a clean mask daily. Parents may consider having a few as one may be in the wash. You can also keep an extra one in your child's backpack. Some have asked us about gaiters as masks. The CDC noted having layers of fabric in cloth masks, so folded gaiters may work (Early Release of Effectiveness of Cloth Masks... Online Report).Many parents have shared they find great prices for masks and uniforms at Old Navy, you can sign up to be notified of sales.
