School Uniforms

All students must come to school each day in the Romero Academy uniform. If a student arrives at school out of uniform, parents/guardians will be called and asked to bring in a uniform and/or a temporary one will be loaned to the scholar while their own arrives at the school. If a family cannot afford to purchase the school uniform, Romero Academy will help seek a way to provide uniforms for the student. We have a required school uniform for several important reasons.

Uniforms Unite us as a Community

When you look at a group of students in the Romero Academy uniform, it is a powerful visual statement of our community. Students make a commitment when they put on the Romero Academy uniform; they are agreeing to live up to the school’s high expectations.

Uniforms Reduce Distractions and Clothing Competition

Often students spend more time discussing and evaluating what others are wearing or not wearing than they spend focusing on learning. Wearing uniforms eliminates this distraction.

Uniforms Make us all Equal

Regardless of income, students will come to school looking the same. A uniform policy allows our students to avoid concerns about the clothes they are wearing to school each day.

Uniforms Look Professional

Students look neat when they arrive at school with shirts tucked into their pants. The students come mentally prepared for school and “dressed for work.”

Please make sure your scholar is in uniform EVERY day and ready to learn. This means students must have their uniform shirts tucked into their pants, wearing the appropriate shoes, shirt, and uniform bottoms. Detailed uniform guidelines are available from the Main Office.

Attendance Policy

Kindergarten through 7th Grade – Attendance Policy

Getting to school on time is key to your child’s success – at school and in life. Late students miss vital academic time and we would like to instill timeliness as a value in order to prepare our students for college and beyond. At Romero Academy at Resurrection, the learning begins from the moment students walk in the door. Students who are late miss essential instruction, disrupt the learning of other children, and risk falling behind in our ambitious curriculum.
