    BELTS:
    Belts must be worn with uniform bottoms having belt loops. No oversized buckles will be allowed. The belt must fit into all the belt loops of the pants or shorts and be buckled at all times. No part of the belt can be hanging at any time. Shirts must be tucked in tight enough so that the belt can be seen at all times.SHOES: Style and color of shoes may be chosen by the student. NO flip flops, backless, or Crocs/Croc-type shoes, furry boots are allowed at school. The decision of whether or not any chosen footwear is acceptable is to be made by Chateau Estates School administration.  Tennis shoes are highly recommended.

    OTHER ITEMS:
    Only blue, navy, or white T-shirts will be allowed under short-sleeve uniform shirts.

    OUTERWEAR:
    Only approved coats, jackets, and uniform sweaters will be allowed to be worn inside the building at any time.   STARTER JACKETS and other bulky coats are not allowed in the school at any time. These jackets prove to be a problem to store, make it difficult to detect items not allowed in the school, and do not allow for proper monitoring of school uniforms.   When you purchase a jacket for your child, please refer to the following guidelines:

    A.   Navy blue cardigan sweaters may be worn over the school uniform and may be worn indoors and in the classroom. These items are available at the uniform stores.  Sweaters should be of plain cardigan design.

    B.   Lightweight navy jackets may be worn in the classroom.

    C.   Only solid blue heavy winter jackets will be allowed to be worn to school. Heavy jackets are to be removed once the student enters the building.

    D.   If you purchase a jacket with a hood, your child may not wear the hood in the building at any time.
