In February 2011, Hilltop Elementary parents and students adopted a uniform dress code policy. Uniforms are one way to instill pride in our students; pride in themselves, their school and community. Our uniform shows the world the unity we share at Hilltop and that our students are dressed for success.

All students at Hilltop will be required to wear their uniforms Monday through Friday from arrival to dismissal. Only the articles listed below can be worn as the Hilltop uniform. Clothing may not be tight, oversized or revealing. Clothing must be neat in appearance and worn appropriately. Coats are not allowed to be worn in the building during school hours.

Students may earn free dress days as rewards for various reasons including perfect attendance. When students have earned free dress days, they will have a sticker that indicates free dress.

On Fridays, students can choose to wear T-Shirts to support colleges, careers, or causes that are of importance or interest to them.


Administration reserves the right to restrict clothing items or accessories that disrupt teaching and learning.

  • If students are not in uniform compliance, students will be required to call home.
  • If parent/guardian contact cannot be made, students will be held accountable and required to borrow clothing from the office between 8:40 to 9:00 a.m.
  • A uniform notification letter will be sent home with the student.
