Dress Code

CARVER IS A MANDATORY UNIFORM SCHOOL

We will enforce a strict dress code at Carver Middle. All students are expected to wear uniforms to school and to be neat and well groomed at all times. Students violating the dress code will be subject to disciplinary action. Other clothing issues such as size, and/or fit, will be considered on an individual basis, and acceptability will be determined at the discretion of the administration.

The uniform will be: A uniform-standard, 3-button polo shirt in orange, hunter green or white. The shirt may not be the form-fitting girl’s style and must have the G.W. Carver Middle logo, either embroidered or with a sewn-on patch. Patches may be purchased in the school office. Standard uniform pants, (chinos), shorts or skorts must be worn in khaki or navy.

Shorts and skorts must be no more than two inches above the knee in length. Girls are under no circumstances to roll up their shorts/skorts more than two inches above the knee. For cold-weather wear, jackets or sweaters may be worn but they must have buttons or a zipper down the front, and they must conform to Miami-Dade County Public School’s student dress code. No pullover sweaters or sweatshirts are permitted.

The last Friday of every month will be “Jean Day.” Students may wear standard-fit blue jean bottoms with school uniform tops or club shirts. Jeans must not be excessively form-fitting or have holes in them. Please note that on pre-approved non-uniform days, students are to adhere to the M-DCPS dress code and cannot wear attire which distracts the attention of other students or creates a safety hazard.
