  • On field trips, the green uniform top and khaki uniform bottoms are required.
  • Teacher discretion may be used to either require that uniforms be worn for special functions or field trips scheduled on a Friday, or request clothing other than uniforms be worn on a field trip depending on the nature of the trip.
