Dress Code

The Collaborative School Committee has adopted a uniform dress code for Kepner Legacy Middle School.  It is based on the philosophy that a uniform dress code supports a safe learning environment and helps students’ focus on academic achievement while at school.

The Kepner dress code is to be followed at all times on school grounds or when representing Kepner Legacy. For safety reasons, no solid red attire including shoes, shoelaces, belts etc. may be worn.

    SHIRTS AND HOODIES:

   GENERAL:
