Uniform Policy

Uniform Policies are determined by the school community. The Mattos community will gather during the 2018-19 school year to determine what policies we would like to put into place for the 2019-20 school year. Until official policies are put into place, Mattos will have a recommended dress code as follows:

  • Shirts: solid white, navy or burgundy collared
  • Pants: navy or khaki
  • Shorts/Skorts: navy or khaki
  • Jumpers/Skirts: navy or khaki
  • Sweaters/Sweatshirts: solid white, navy, burgundy
  • Belts: navy, black or brown
  • Shoes: closed toe athletic shoes (exceptions during rain)
  • Socks: white or navy
  • Tights: white, navy, or black (toe to waist)
  • Leggings: solid white, navy (under dresses or skirts only, not alone)
  • Hats/hoods: may be worn outside only, must not cover face
  • Garments in dress code colors can be purchased at any retail store of your choice.
