A part of our Safe School Plan includes the enforcement of the school uniform policy. Uniforms can be purchased at almost any major store that carries children's clothing; we also have select collard shirts available at the Student Store. See below for uniform policy information:
In order to increase student achievement, it is the policy of Pio Pico STEAM Middle School that students wear uniforms. Our uniforms are maroon or grey collared shirts and black bottoms.
Students may wear black long pants, walking shorts, or skirts with a maroon or grey collard shirt.
All pants, shorts, and skirts must be worn at the waistline. Pants and shorts should be belted at the waistline. Pants should also be free of any rips or tears.
Shirts must cover the midriff, and no thin strap tank tops or strapless tops are allowed. All shirts must have a collar.
Pajamas can not be worn unless otherwise specified (spirit week activities, etc.)
Jackets, sweaters and pullovers must be maroon or grey with Pio Pico logo ONLY. No other logos or emblems are allowed.
Caps and hats should not be worn at anytime unless for medical reasons. Pio Pico hats and beanies are allowed during inclement weather but must be removed indoors.
Shoes with socks are a practice of good hygiene; tennis shoes Or low-heeled rubber-sole shoes are recommended.
No high heels, sandals, flip flops, crocs or open-toe shoes should be worn. Excessive jewelry (necklaces, rings, bracelets, dangling earrings) should be kept at home.
For safety reasons, students may not wear facial piercings, large hoop earrings, gages, or spiked earrings while at school.
Belts with studs or chains are not permitted at school.
PE uniforms shall only be worn during the students PE class. PE uniforms are not a substitution for school uniforms.
