Uniform and Dress Standards
CES has adopted a uniform dress code that provides students with a variety of mix-and-match clothing options within a preselected range of colors and styles.  All students are required to wear approved uniform attire each day and dress appropriately, healthfully, and modestly at all times.  Dress and/or grooming which draws undue attention to the students are not permitted.

A+, Classroom, Dickies, French Toast, Old Navy and Rifle are brands that can be used also to purchase uniform jumpers, pants and shorts. Plaid clothing can only be purchased at Outfitters*.
Note:  A limited selection of gently used, outgrown uniform clothing is also available, free of charge, at the school during     registration and throughout the school year in the “Coble Closet.” 
Pants & Shorts - All uniform pants/shorts/skorts must be modest (no skinny/fitted/stretchy uniform styles).
Shirts - All uniform shirts, turtlenecks, etc. must have the CES logo. Students may wear short-sleeved or long-sleeved “polo-style” knit shirts in the following colors: White, Black, Navy, Yellow, and Hunter Green.  A  navy blue uniform shirt is required attire for some field trips, so ensure that your child has at least one.   Oxford-style, long-sleeved, button-front shirts in either solid White or Blue/White Stripe may also be worn, but must be tucked in at the waist. Striped shirts should never be worn with plaid skirts.
When worn untucked, the bottom edge of uniform shirts should reach the hip area & not be hanging to the knees.  If uniform shirts are worn untucked, no t-shirt or camisole hems should show below the bottom edge of the uniform shirt.  Any visible undershirts, t-shirts or camisoles worn beneath a CES shirt must be white. A plain long sleeve white shirt may be worn under a CES logo short sleeve shirt.
Belts - If uniform shirts are worn tucked in, a Brown, Black, or Uniform Plaid belt must be worn with any pants or shorts with belt loops for students in grades 3-8.  Students in Pre-K through Grade 2 are not required to wear belts. No Ribbon belts.
Skirts/Dresses All uniform skirts, jumpers & dresses must be knee length.
When girls wear dresses or skirts in the playground, modesty becomes an issue.  It is mandatory that either Tights/Leggings (see below) or “Soffe” athletic shorts (in Solid Black or Navy) be worn underneath their dresses or skirts.
Tights & Leggings - Girls may choose to wear Solid Navy, Black, or White tights or leggings underneath their uniform skirts.  Leggings may have a solid color trim along the bottom edge, but no lace.
Socks - Any calf or ankle socks (other than no show socks) should be matching white, tan, black or navy. NO SHOW socks can be any color.
Shoes- Athletic/tennis shoes are required in the gym for P.E. or sports activities.  No shoes should be worn that would scuff the gym floor. All shoes must be closed toed and closed heeled.  High heels and shoes with wheels are not permitted.  Other examples of unacceptable shoes include: Sandals, Flip-Flops, Crocs, and Boots.
Outerwear - All sweaters, sweatshirts, vests, jackets, etc. worn inside the classroom must be purchased from one of the official uniform suppliers and have the appropriate CES logo.  All other coats, jackets, and non-official outerwear worn by students to/from school must be removed once the student arrives at his/her classroom.  No hoods are to be worn in the school building.
Condition & Fit of Clothing - All uniform clothing worn to school must be clean and in good condition, with no obvious rips, ragged ends, holes or stains. Pants that drag the ground, ride very low at the waist, or are oversized are unacceptable.
Hair - Boys should not have their front bangs hanging down past their eyebrows.  Extreme hairstyles and unnatural hair colors/treatments are not permitted.
Make-Up - In view of what is age-appropriate and consistent with the Christian’s emphasis on inner beauty, if any make-up is used at all, it should be very minimal, natural and tasteful.  No black nail polish.
Perfume/Scented Products - Due to allergies and acute sensitivities among some of our staff and students, all perfumes and strongly fragranced toiletries, deodorants, etc. should be avoided.
Jewelry - All jewelry, wrist and ankle bands are forbidden.
