School Policies


In compliance with the Chancellor’s Regulations, TCCS expects each student to wear a uniform. The uniform policy is intended to promote a more effective learning climate; foster school unity and pride; foster self-esteem; eliminate label competition; simplify dressing and minimize cost to the parents; teach children appropriate dress and decorum in their “work” place; and help to ensure positive student conduct.

Our definition of a uniform is:
•    A navy/light blue polo/oxford shirt and khaki pants or skirt for regular school days.
•    A white polo/oxford shirt and khaki pants or skirt for formal occasions such as assemblies.
•    Navy blue bottoms are an acceptable alternative to khaki in the winter.

Shirts can be short or long sleeved with a collar.

All uniform clothing can be purchased at a store that supplies uniforms or at any store of your choice. Every effort should be made to select clothing that is durable and easy to care for.

Uniforms may not consist of clothing that might cause health or safety hazards such as very long slender skirts that cause difficulty going up and down steps especially at times of swift movement, like fire drills or very short skirts that may be disruptive to the educational process.

Uniforms are required every school day. For health reasons, the school cannot provide loaner uniforms for children who fail to report in uniform.

Students are to wear comfortable clothes that are appropriate for the activities planned for physical education. Sweatpants, knee-length shorts, pants and t-shirts are acceptable.

Field Trip Chaperones

Each parent who volunteers as a field trip chaperone is assigned a small group of children. Each chaperone is responsible for the safety of all children assigned to his/her group at all times:

On the bus:
•    Instruct the children to remain seated at all times
•    Ensure that all children have working seat belts

During the trip:
•    Inform the teacher of any emergencies (bathroom, illness, etc)
•    No child is to be un-escorted
•    Chaperones must never leave their group unattended and must be willing to assist another parent with their group
•    Remind students about appropriate behavior and language. If a student is having a challenging day with behavior and/or language, please inform the teacher in charge immediately

After the trip:
•    Ensure that ALL students are off the bus
•    Line them up in an orderly fashion and escort them into the school building
