Dress Code/Uniforms

Student Dress Code

The Student Dress section of the OCPS Student Code of Conduct states that, “Individual schools are expected to use the district dress and grooming guidelines as minimum standards, but are encouraged to extend their own standards to meet the uniqueness of their school community.” As an extension of the OCPS Student Dress expectations, the Killarney standards will also include the following items:


  • All students must wear forest green or white polo shirts.
  • Killarney Spirit T-Shirts may be worn on Fridays only.

Shirts with the school logo are not mandatory. However, if you would like to purchase the logo shirts, visit My Spirit Wear at Killarney.


  • All students must wear khaki, navy blue, black, or blue jean bottoms.
  • Shorts and skirts must be long enough to reach the bottom of the child's fingertips, i.e. mid-thigh.
  • Shorts and pants must be worn around the waist and must fit properly.
  • Girls may wear jumper-style/rompers dresses in khaki, navy, black, or blue jean.


  • Shoes must be closed-toe and closed-heel.
  • Sandals must have backs and no toes exposed.
  • Sneakers are recommended.

Examples of Inappropriate Clothing:

  • No tank-tops or sleeveless tops.
  • No tops that expose the stomach.
  • No baggy shorts or pants worn below the waist.
  • No basketball/athletic shorts.
  • No jeans with rips or holes.
  • No flip-flops or crocs without backs. 
  • No shoes with wheels.
  • No shoes with heels higher than 1 1/2 inch.
  • No shoes with metal cleats.
  • No articles of clothing which make reference directly or indirectly to profanity, vulgarity, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gangs, or violence
  • No bandannas
  • No hair rollers or curlers
  • No hats, caps, and/or visors during the school day or while on campus.
  • No sunglasses

Administration will make the final decision as to the appropriateness of ALL items of dress.

Uniform Waiver Policy
The DOE policy requires a provision allowing parents to request a waiver for their child to be excused from following the uniform policy. The following are the cases that are qualified for requests for waivers: 

· Financial hardship (Please note that our school does NOT require purchase of clothing from a uniform company. The clothing required for uniforms can be bought at any store you would normally buy your children’s clothing so this issue was minimized for our families.) 

· Medical reasons that prevent student’s ability to wear school uniform. 

· Incoming students that commence after the first month of school. (They have a grace period of 30 days to comply with the Uniform Policy.) Each waiver will be reviewed by a committee on a case by case basis and must be renewed annually.
