School Uniform and Supplies

Uniform Policy

In 2007, the I.S 93 School Leadership Team (SLT) adopted our uniform policy. In alignment with Chancellor's Regulation A-665, we believe our uniform policy has helped our school "promote a more effective learning climate; foster school unity and pride; improve student performance; foster self-esteem; eliminate label competition; simplify dressing and minimize costs to parents; teach children appropriate dress and decorum in their “work” place; and help to improve student conduct and discipline." We are proud to be a uniform school and have a variety of uniform options for our students. We encourage our students to wear their uniforms every day and to participate in school spirit days throughout the year, which include Fridays and numerous other days posted on our school calendar.

For your convenience and in support of our uniform policy, our school uniform comes in several styles and can be purchased from Needleheads, 88-01 Myrtle Avenue, Glendale, NY 11385 or online at (i.e., polo $10, t-shirt $6, sweatshirt $14, and hoodie $20) The store phone number is (718) 850-4252 (Ask for Dennis Coy).

Note: You are not required to order from Needleheads as per Chancellor's Regulation A-665. You may purchase from any vendor/store of your choice. Parents have the right to secure an exemption from the uniform requirement. You may also contact the principal, designee, or family advocate if you cannot afford a uniform. As far as discipline for a student not wearing the school uniform, we remind the student to wear it. We will call home if non-compliance is a frequent occurrence to gain insight and support. We are proud that virtually all students wear their uniforms daily.
