Benjamin Franklin students are expected to dress in a neat, attractive fashion reflecting pride in themselves and their school. The dress code is established to help ensure an atmosphere conducive to study. Pride in student dress is one of the most observable differences at Benjamin Franklin Charter School. It is both the parents' and the child's responsibility to ensure compliance with the Dress Code. For examples of the Dress Code click here.
If you choose to wear uniform shorts/capris, they must be worn with the collared polo uniform shirt which is available for purchase through the FPAC. The office has a listing of sources for the purchase of approved uniform shorts/capris. (The Franklin standard school uniform is required when wearing shorts/capris). Exceptions: On P.E. days, non-uniform shorts may be worn under school clothing and worn during the P.E. period. On Field Days, students may change into shorts/capris for outside activities. If a child is not in compliance with the dress code, parents may be notified.
