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.

Parent Tips

Our dress code policy was designed to be as easy and inexpensive as possible for parents.  As you purchase new school clothing for students, please keep the following information in mind:

  • Dress according to the season
  • Layer for warmth in uniform colors (ex. white long sleeve tees under polos)
  • Buy at least two bottoms & three tops
  • Clothing should be well fitting, neat in appearance, and worn correctly
  • Purchase a range of sizes, uniforms can be difficult to find in the spring

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.
