Uniform Policy

Our dress code was developed to establish a friendly and professional atmosphere that promotes pride, respect, and safety for the students and staff. As a family of professionals, our basic standard for students is a professional appearance in which they can take pride. School is a place of business and education is the student's job. We depend on our parents to support and assist us in maintaining our dress code standards. As of August 1, 2017, the following dress code guidelines will be enforced daily at Griffith Middle School.

Griffith Middle School Uniform Colors are dark navy blue bottoms and light blue shirts.


  • Light blue long or short sleeve unisex formal dress shirt may be worn from Monday through Friday


  • Light blue unisex collar polo shirt.

  • Black clip-on ties/bowties for boys, crisscross ties for girls, will be worn on assigned days. (The calendar will be provided at the end of August 2018).

  • Dark navy uniform pants, shorts, skirts or plaid blue skirts. Skirts or shorts may be worn no more than 3” above or below the knee.

  • You are given a choice of shoes with the exception of flip flops or slippers.

Optional outerwear for students
