    SENIORS SHIRTS

    Senior students may wear the California Blue Polo Shirt or the White Oxford Shirt, whichever they prefer.  The Thomas Jefferson Academy logo should be embroidered on the right side of the shirt - not a patch. If the white oxford shirt is monogrammed, it can contain only their first initial and their last name (ex. J. Doe).  The monogramming should be in black, gray, or school blue and placed on the left side of the shirt.  A regular shirt (long sleeve or short sleeve) or long sleeve tshirt cannot be worn at any time over the uniform shirts.

     

    6th - 11th GRADE SHIRTS

    All students must wear the California Blue Polo Shirt everyday unless there is a specified dress down day.  The Thomas Jefferson Academy logo should be embroidered on the left side of the shirt - not a patch.  A regular shirt (long sleeve or short sleeve) or long sleeve tshirt cannot be worn at any time over the uniform shirts.

     

    PANTS OR SHORTS

    Pants and shorts must be "Dickie Style", flat panel front without pleats, and light gray. Sweatpants, leggings, jeggings, jeans, pants with elastic at the ankle, skinny jeans, or anthing that falls outside of the "Dickie style" mentioned earlier cannot be worn.  Pants may not be rolled at the cuff. 

     

    SKIRTS

    Girls may opt to wear the grey Thomas Jefferson pleated skirt available at the local uniform stores.  This is a particular style so please contact the office if you are unsure of the style.  Skirts must be no higher than 2" above the knee.

     

    SHOES

    Any color tennis shoes may be worn. They cannot be open toe, backless, crocs, slippers, "shrimp boots", or slip-ons.

     

    HEADWEAR

    A student will not wear a hat, cap, hair rollers, shower caps, or hooded garment to school.  

     

    OUTWEAR

    Students may wear Thomas Jefferson Sweatshirts or solid black sweatshirts over their Uniform Shirt.  HOODIES ARE NOT ALLOWED.  If a student wears a black sweatshirt, it cannot have writing or images on the sweatshirt.  Each class typically has their own sweatshirt design that is sold at the school in the fall.  If an extra layer is needed, the outerwear must be fully opened in the front.  The outerwear must have zippers, clamps, or buttons. 

     

     SCHOOL ID AND LANYARD

     

    All students will be issued a Thomas Jefferson Academy ID.  A date will be announced as to when school pictures will be taken.  After that, the students will receive their ID along with the Thomas Jefferson Academy Lanyard.  All students must wear their ID around their neck.  It should not be in their backpacks, pockets, or any other location.  Additionally, students must wear the TJA Lanyard issued by the office.  Substitutions are not allowed.  If lost or destroyed, students are charged $5.00 for a new ID and $2.00 for a new lanyard.  If a student forgets their ID, they are charged $1.00 for a temporary ID.  The temporary ID must be stuck to the front of their uniform shirt or sweatshirt and must be visible the entire time they are on campus.

     

    CELL PHONES

    Cell phone and earbud/headphone use is not allowed while the student is on campus.  Therefore, cell phones should not be out in the classroom unless the teacher has specifically given you permission to use it for an assignment.  Additionally, students should not have their cell phones out while walking on campus, in the cafeteria, in the library, in the gym, or anywhere else on campus.  Student cell phones should be turned off when they arrive on campus and stored away.  If a student needs to make a phone call, they can come to the office to use the phone.
