Dress Code

Cambridge School has a dress code. Students are required to wear school uniform tops Monday through Thursday of each week. Fridays are designated as casual days when students may wear clean, neat, non-uniform clothing of their choice. If clothing is deemed inappropriate for school, students will be asked to change.

It is also a good idea to keep a change of clothing for your child in his/her cubby, in a sealed and labeled bag, in case clothes become wet or muddied during the day.
