Program Uniforms

What is needed for a Program Uniform? Where is it purchased? When is it worn?

Program Uniforms are worn by all students on their assigned program class day.  Students will know which day this is based on their class schedule.  

Program uniforms are head to toe:  Shirts, belt, pants, socks, shoes. However, there have been some minor adjustments made to the cyber security, criminal justice, forensic science and 911 dispatch.  Please make sure you review the appropriate flyer for your program and grade level.

The EMS program also requires a specific watch and the LE and EMS program requires all hair past ear length must be secured behind the head.  Classroom instructors will give further details when school resumes.

A program uniform is specific to each students program class.  Every student and every grade level wears the same bottom half program uniform (belt, pants, socks, shoes). The only difference between programs is the shirt that is worn.
