  • Notice For Dress Code

    Parents,
     
    Campus and District administration have made the decision to not have a set uniform policy for each campus. Instead, students will simply need to follow the District's 2019-2020 approved dress code policy. The policy will be found in the 2019-2020 Santa Maria Student Handbook. 
     
    For those parents who have already purchased uniforms for their child, they can still use them as the uniforms will comply with the District's dress code. This decision was made in order to provide flexibility to the families of Santa Maria, and alleviate the burden of parents looking for specific colored polo shirts.
     
    We thank you for your continued support and look forward to a wonderful school year.
