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.  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.

Yes.  We normally do a Program Uniform donation day at the end of the school year.  After the items are washed and sorted we typically have two days during the summer that Sentinel Families can come in and shop at greatly reduced prices.  All funds from the sale are used to support our Sentinel Scholarship Program.   However, for the 2020-21 school year, the collection/distribution schedule has been disrupted. We will post details of dates and times as soon as we are able.
