IS 162 – The Willoughby School is a uniform school. All students are required to wear the appropriate uniform. We are asking for your support as we strive to continue to provide increased safety. We strongly encourage your participation in our uniform policy. We believe it encourages our students to experience a greater sense of school identity and belonging, an improvement in student behavior, a high level of program participation and to improve and expand on academic excellence as well as reducing school clothing costs,
The uniform is a school shirt only. All students must attend school each day in the school uniform. Students may not wear other articles of clothing (such as a hoodie sweatshirt) over their school uniform. If students purchase the school sweatshirts students must still wear the school shirt as this is the uniform. Uniforms may be purchased at the school.
Students that are not in their required school uniform will be given a school uniform shirt to be worn. Students are required to bring $8.00 for the cost of the uniform shirt the next day of school.
Students are not permitted to wear outerwear or non-school sweatshirts with their uniform shirt.
If a parent cannot afford the school uniform, the parent may request a meeting with the principal for other arrangements to be made.
