Uniform Information

Johnnie Carr Middle School students are expected to be clean, neat, and appropriately dressed for school.  The uniform guidelines of the school coincide with MPS dress code, but in a more detailed and school specific form. Dress and appearance must not be disruptive or present safety or health problems.  Clothing extremely tight or revealing that provokes or distracts other students is disruptive, thus, improper and unacceptable.  Some hairstyles/cuts may also be considered disruptive.   Students will be unexcused from classes missed as a result of inappropriate dress or grooming. The following are guidelines students are expected to adhere to:

 

Sixth graders:

wear a solid black polo-type uniform shirt with a collar, sleeves that stop at the middle of biceps, and no more than 3 buttons.

Seventh graders:

wear a solid gold polo-type uniform shirt with a collar, sleeves that stop at the middle of biceps, and no more than 3 buttons.

Eighth graders:

wear a solid white polo-type uniform shirt with a collar, sleeves that stop at the middle of biceps, and no more than 3 buttons.

 

Shirts:

Shirts will be tucked in at the natural waist line. If an undershirt is worn, it may not be another collared shirt. Uniform shirts should not have any emblems on them (i.e. Aeropostale, Izod, or Polo. They may have Johnnie Carr embroidered on them). Pullover sweatshirts must match the color of the uniform shirt. 8th grade students can wear a white or gray pullover. Pullover sweatshirts can be purchased through Carr’s PTSA.
