The first requirement of quality education is to create a safe and disciplined learning environment while maintaining the focus on academic achievement. The FRES Standards of Dress minimize disruptions and distractions caused by inappropriate attire and foster a safe, orderly, professional learning environment. The policy includes all students in grades two through six. The FRES student attire is available in the Ft. Rucker PX and other retail outlets.
All clothing must be solid in color. Acceptable fabrics are cotton, cotton blends, corduroy, wool, or denim. No spandex, nylon, leather or leather-like material is allowed.

This dress policy is designed to be a religiously neutral, mandatory, universally applicable policy. However, we recognize that in some unique circumstances, accommodations or exceptions to the dress policy based upon medical or religious justifications are reasonable and appropriate. Nevertheless, the mere fact that a request for accommodation is sincerely made and supported by the appropriate documentation does not mean that it will automatically be granted. The school must also determine that the requested manner of accommodation is "reasonable" in light of all the facts and circumstances.
New students, who register after the first day of school, will be given 15 days before being expected to adhere to the standard of dress.
Administrators will address all situations (excessive accessories or items not covered) that may interrupt the learning environment. The Principal is the final authority.
