At Chester A. Moore Elementary we dress for success!  Our behavior patterns are affected by what we wear.  We believe that students’ dress should be neat, clean and should not distract or cause disruption in the education process.  According to the research, dress code enhances the overall learning environment as it encourages discipline, increases a sense of belonging and school pride.   School is the student’s job and school attire should reflect a work oriented attitude.  Please notify Administration if you have questions or concerns about the dress code policy.  Administration makes the final decision on dress code.  Thank you for your cooperation.
