Spirit Wear Policy

It is the policy of the Frank M. Silvia School that all students in Kindergarten to grade 5 will wear School Spiritwear. School Spiritwear is limited to the required clothing, as adopted by the Fall River School Committee in 2009.

Parental Responsibility
It is the responsibility of parents/guardians of students in Kindergarten through grade 5 at the Frank M. Silvia School to ensure that their child dress in accordance with the School Spirit wear policy.
This will ensure a conducive learning environment for all students as well as discourage competition of various styles and brands. Uniformity for all students will cause less distraction, keep a focus on learning, and establish a safe environment at the Silvia School.

School Attire
Oxford shirts, tees, polo shirts, sweaters, and sweatshirts must have the school logo.
Pants, shorts, skorts, capris, skirts, shirts and tees may be purchased from any retailer of your choice.

Tees, Polo shirts or sweatshirts in royal blue, white or kelly green
. NO navy blue or dark green shirts.

Dockers, Dickies or Chinos - khaki, dark blue (navy) or black.
NO jeans, jogging pants, skinny pants or stretch knit pants.

Skirts or Skorts
Khaki, dark blue (navy), or black in color.
No really short clothing.

Morning Drop-off
Please be aware that drop off in the morning is intended to be a quick process.  We ask that your child is ready to exit the vehicle with his/her backpack, lunchbox, etc.    Parents should not be putting their cars in “park” and getting out to get children settled.  If your child requires more attention at drop off, please park in the back parking lot (not the small one at the front of the school) and walk him/ her to the door.
Students arriving at school after 7:35am will be considered tardy. Please plan accordingly, as there is a lot of traffic in the morning.
