Abigail Nwanwa, EDITOR: Saffiatu Johnson

Dr. Brown had released the latest CHF Updates. In the update there has been an announcement for a possible change in students uniform for next year. There is now a petition from The Uniform Committee, if 20% of parents sign it the uniform policy will be revised. If not the uniform will stay Mandatory. The vote is from MARCH 30th to APRIL 8th. Tell your parents now and get them to sign it!

Uniform Policy- Moving Forward

As we continue to plan for next year, it is important that we solicit input from all members of our school community whether or not we will continue to be an institution that requires school uniforms. As students have increasingly taken advantage of the flexibility offered with the current uniform policy and with the growing number of families that have communicated their concern with having a mandatory uniform policy, it is time to revisit whether it is in our best interest to remain a mandatory uniform school. The Uniform Committee, in conjunction with the PTSA have explored the process of exploring options and, as Principal, I am communicating the process in this correspondence. The steps that will be taken are as follows:

1. If 20% of the parents in the school complete the petition below, the uniform policy will be revisited and taken to a vote.  Parents will have from March 15- March 29 to sign the petition. If the petition does not reach the 20% threshold, we will remain a Mandatory Uniform School.

Petition- Revisit the possible removal of the Mandatory Uniform Policy

2. If the 20% threshold is reached, parents will be given the opportunity to vote on whether the school would continue the Mandatory Uniform policy or not. The vote will occur from March 30- April 8. lf the majority of parents that cast votes decide that they would like the policy vacated, then CHF will no longer be a Mandatory Uniform School.

3. The outcome of the process will be communicated to the school community upon the return from Spring Break on April 19

This process is aligned with the expectations of PGCPS Administrative Procedure 0114  which I have linked for your convenience.

If CHF ceases to be a mandatory Uniform School, students will be required to wear their School ID’s while in the school community.  Regardless of whether CHF continues to be a Mandatory Uniform School, students are required to abide by the PGCPS Dress Code.  These mandates will be enforced immediately.  Details of the dress code are detailed below:
