Updated Eakin Dress Code / Denim jeans now allowed daily
Starting January 7th, for the second semester, the Eakin dress code has been revised for the rest of the year to allow jeans every day of the week. Previously denim was only allowed on Fridays. The updated dress code is always available on the PTO website under the "Links" tab and is also posted below.
Eakin Elementary Student Dress Code
Students have two options for shirts every day:
Students must wear one of these shirt choices with solid-color blue, navy, black, gray, or khaki shorts, pants, skirts, jumpers, or dresses. Solid color denim jeans in these colors are acceptable, provided they are in good condition, without holes, rips that show skin, or frayed edges.
A solid-colored blazer, sweater, vest, jacket, fleece, or sweatshirt (hooded sweatshirts are allowed, but the hood should not be worn in the building) may be worn over any solid-colored shirt with a collar or Eakin logo shirt.
Eakin logo shirts are always available for purchase on the PTO website online store. A physical inventory of these items will be available for purchase at major school events. Prices from the physical inventory are lower than online since we receive bulk pricing.
Here are some specific guidelines that may be helpful:
