Uniform Policy

The information below serves as a guide to Foundations College Prep’s uniform requirements. Foundations College Prep reserves the right to determine whether or not any part of a uniform is appropriate. We reserve the right to ask students to correct any part of the uniform at any time. If a student cannot correct the uniform, he or she will be asked to call home or wear a school-issued article of clothing until the uniform can be corrected. Appropriate demerits will be assigned. If parents/students are unsure whether or not they meet the uniform requirements, it is best to check with the student’s advisor before wearing the item in question to school.

Cell Phone Policy

Middle school students are required to put their cell phones into a locked box during AM advisory. Locked boxes will be stored in the main office during the school day, and cell phones will be returned to students during PM advisory. If cell phones are heard or seen during the school day, they will be confiscated and the student will earn the appropriate demerits. Confiscated phones will not be returned to students: a parent/guardian must come to pick it up. 

High school students are expected to turn off their cell phones when they enter the school building. Phones must be kept out of sight, preferably stored in students’ lockers, during the school day. If students have a visible cell phone, they will be directed to put it away. If the cell phone makes noise or students are caught using a cell phone, they will earn an automatic detention and the phone will be confiscated for a parent/guardian to pick up.

If parents/guardians need to contact a student during the school day for emergency purposes, they should call the main office.
