The Flatbush Seventh-day Adventist School has adopted a prescribed uniform for the students enrolled in the school. Students of Grades 1-5 are required to wear the full uniform determined by the school. Uniforms are to be obtained from Ideal Department Store, 1814 Flatbush Avenue, near Avenue K, telephone (718) 252-5090. Uniforms should be ordered at least two (2) months in advance to ensure readiness for the opening of school. Please obtain order blanks, style, and price list from the school.
Uniformity in dress is encouraged and students are required to wear full uniform during school attendance as well as to and from school.
Students are also expected to be well-groomed at all times and whenever they appear in public. They must be neat, clean, modest, and representative of a true Christian.
Dress and Jewelry
Students are encouraged to dress modestly. Colorful cosmetics, nail polish, items of jewelry including rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, ornaments, and other types of jewelry must not be worn or brought to school. Any such items brought to school will be confiscated until the end of the school year or parents must come to retrieve them.
Parents are requested to cooperate with the school in all these matters and should send a written note of explanation when a student cannot be in full uniform. Failure to present this note may result in the child being sent home immediately.
The hair should be neat and clean at all times. Hairstyles should be modest. Matted hair is strictly prohibited. Boys should not completely shave their head, nor wear any other extravagant hairstyle. The school administration reserves the right to determine what is appropriate.
Continuous refusal to comply will be considered serious and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
