Uniforms Are Now Required At Madison

Starting with the first day of school, Madison will be implementing a School Uniform policy. Below is the policy for you to read.


The staff of Madison Elementary School believes that every student should be allowed to learn free of distraction.  An environment which is safe and caring will only increase our students’ abilities to be as successful as we know they can be.  The following Uniform Policy has the support of staff, parents, and the TRUSD School Board.


Students are expected to be in uniform beginning with the first day of school and will wear uniforms every day except on those scheduled days determined by staff. In addition to classroom consequences, any child not in uniform will miss the first recess of the day, and every effort will be made to bring the child into compliance, including calling home and seeing what is available in the uniform closet.


Students may wear solid navy blue or tan pants, shorts, skirts, skorts, or dresses and solid white or navy blue collared tops.  In addition, students may wear their Madison T-shirts or sweatshirts on Fridays which are available for sale in the school office.  Clothing must fit well and not be baggy or have holes. Belts may not be longer than 3 inches after buckling and must be black, brown or navy.  Shirts with logos or sayings on them are not allowed, except for Madison T-shirts and sweatshirts, and they must be long enough to cover the midriff area.


Lace-up or Velcro sneakers are the ideal.  No cleats, slippers, heels, flip-flops or shoes with wheels are allowed.  Sandals may be worn but must be closed toed with a back strap for support.



Baseball caps may be worn during recess but are not allowed to be worn in classrooms or buildings.  Knitted caps in winter are allowed.



Children may not wear make-up.  Jewelry should be kept to a minimum.  No pierced body parts except for ears, and earrings may not dangle.  Hair must be of a natural color.
