Experience the power of public education.
The Pulaski County Special School District implemented school uniforms in August 2000. The three solid color shirts allowed at Chenal Elementary are Red, White or Navy. The shirts may have long or short sleeves, turtleneck or collared shirt, and the shirts must be tucked in. The policy allows for Khaki or Navy pants/slacks and walking shorts. The pants may be belted or elastic at the waist. Students must wear black or brown belt with all outfits that have belt loops. Girls may also wear skirts, skorts or jumpers. The length of these clothing items should be appropriate for a learning environment. Shorts worn under skirts should be khaki or navy. No logo or emblem will be visible on the clothing. All pants are to be appropriately sized to eliminate bagging and sagging. Shoes/socks may be any color. Students are encouraged to wear closed-toed shoes for safety reasons. No flip-flops are permitted. While not restricted by color at this time, coats will be removed once inside the classroom. Only uniform-colored sweaters, sweatshirts or ‘hoodies’ (with the hood down) will be allowed to be worn within the classroom and must have a uniform shirt underneath. No hats nor scarves will be worn at school. Backpacks were not addressed by the school board, but the clear or mesh type are preferred. The adoption of this policy was to reduce distractions and disruptions caused by clothing. This will make the economic disparities between students less obvious, promote student achievement, and create an orderly learning environment. Your cooperation is appreciated as we implement this uniform policy. Chenal has adopted the following uniform styles and colors: Boys
