TULSA, Oklahoma -- The new standard uniform for Tulsa Public School students will consist of white shirts and beige or khaki pants or skirts, according to a release from the school system.
The school board approved the new uniform policy Thursday evening for elementary, middle and junior high school students.
Although white and khaki are the basic requirements for uniforms, each school will have additional dress codes that include colors like navy blue and pastel pink.
Students are expected to show up for class on the first day of school wearing the new uniforms. High schools – with the exception of schools that already have uniform requirements in place – are exempt from the new policy.
There will be a clothing drive beginning Monday, July 25 to help students fulfill the uniform requirements. Donations will be accepted at any Oklahoma National Bank or Salvation Army location beginning Monday through September 30.
Drop off items between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Purchase the following items in all sizes at any Tulsa area clothing store:
White sweaters and sweatshirts are also part of the dress code, according to the news release. Socks, tights, belts and hair ties will be in solid colors to match uniforms. Student shirts must be tucked in with the exception of sweaters and jackets.
