Greetings Parents and Guardians,
The faculty and staff of Thompson Elementary School expect students to come to school each day dressed appropriately to ensure a focus on learning and to preserve the health and safety of everyone on campus.

Additionally, Thompson Spirit Shirts, School Club Shirts, or College Shirts can be worn on Fridays of each week with the corresponding bottoms listed above. Please review for the colors below by grade level.

Students who come to Thompson after the school year has started will have two weeks to follow dress code requirements.
Dress codes are implemented to promote school safety and minimize distractions. Please see the Student Code of Conduct for actions that may be taken for disregarding the school dress code. Students who fail to comply with the standards may be warned, sent home to change, or provided an alternate article of clothing if available. Excessive disregard to follow the dress code has additional discretionary consequences that an administration can enforce.
