UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS

For the 2019-2020 school year there will not be a school uniform. Students will be expected to follow the dress code policy put forth by School Board Policy 4-31...

The following excerpts regarding the student dress code are from School Board Policy 4-31: “Appropriate student grooming and dress are primarily the responsibility of the student and parent…a student’s personal hygiene, appearance, or dress is such that it does not disrupt or interfere with the educational process or endanger the health and safety of others.

The wearing of garments appropriate for school is to be encouraged.  All instructors should be alert to give helpful, friendly guidance in these matters without embarrassment to the pupil.  Failure of any student to dress simply and appropriately should be brought to the attention of the principal.  Extremes in dress, hairstyle, make-up or jewelry are not in good taste and should be discouraged.  The principal of the individual school will determine when these provisions have been violated and will make the initial decision as to conformity to policy and discipline for offenders.”

This means at Edwins Elementary:

  1. Clothing must be neat, clean, and attractive.  
  2. Footwear is required for sanitary and safety reasons.  (Tennis shoes should be worn for PE as they are required for participation.)
  3. No hats are to be worn inside the building.
  4. Garments bearing inappropriate slogans/pictures are not permitted. (i.e., alcohol, tobacco, drugs, racial remarks, or sexual connotations)
  5. Hairstyle must not interfere with vision.
  6. Tank tops and similar shirts or blouses, when worn without another top, are not permitted. 
  7. The midriff must be covered and undergarments must not show at any time.

Picture of Big Brothers Big Sister LogoBig Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida is excited to offer a school based mentoring program in partnership with Edwins Elementary School. This program allows students the opportunity to be matched with a caring, fully screened, adult mentor who will meet with the student once a week at school. There, they may work on homework, read together, eat lunch or even shoot hoops outside. At the end of the day, it’s all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring them to reach their potential. To enroll your child, click the logo, print and fill out the application and return it to the front office.

Tardies & Check-In/Check-Out Procedures 

Picture of a School House with Children looking out windows 

Students who arrive after 8:30 A.M. have to be signed in through the front office by the parent/guardian and will be considered “TARDY”.  If a student is to be checked out prior to the end of the school day, the student must be signed out in the front office by someone on the check-out list.  If someone other than the designated contacts is to pick up a student, written permission by the parent will be required and the person must present a photo identification.  A phone call will NOT be accepted to provide for your child's safety.

Dismissal is a critical time for all schools.  Office "traffic" must be kept to a minimum for the safety of all students, therefore, all check-outs MUST occur before 2:30 P.M.
