CCS Waives Uniform Dress Code

CCS Waives School Uniform Requirements for the 2022-2023 School Year

Cumberland County Schools (CCS) will pause the enforcement of all CCS school uniform dress codes, districtwide, for the 2022-2023 school year. This pause is necessitated by supply chain and uniform availability issues that we have verified with major area retailers. Some stores said that it would likely be late September or October before they received sufficient inventory. Parents of children who attend uniform schools may continue to send their children to school in uniforms if they desire to do so and are able to locate them, but there will be no penalty imposed upon a student for a uniform violation during the 2022-2023 school year. However, the district’s student dress code requirements will remain in place for students attending all CCS schools, meaning that all students will be expected to wear school-appropriate attire, even if they opt not to wear school uniforms.
