Apollo students wear uniforms as part of the professionalism component of their career technical program. Wearing a uniform is meant to simulate real world work experiences as well as serve as a safety precaution. Uniforms are ordered from a digital portal through the Apollo website. All students who are accepted prior to the first day of school are expected to be in uniform by September 14th. Students accepted within the first two weeks of school beginning must be in uniform by October 1st. Failure of a student to report to school in proper uniform will result in disciplinary action or the student will be sent home. Apollo Career Center requires all students to be in uniform in lab and academics every day. Apollo specifies what clothing must be purchased through its digital portal. Like items purchased outside of the uniform portal, are not considered official uniform. The Apollo Career Center logo is the property of Apollo and cannot be duplicated without authorization.
Students may be required to purchase additional clothing items on their own based upon program requirements. Information on these items will be listed on the digital portal but not available for purchase.
On special occasions as determined by Administration, students may wear regular clothing.
Spirit Wear Days:
On the first Tuesday of each month, Apollo students are permitted to wear Apollo attire. Students may wear jeans or their program specified pant option.
General Dress Code Rules:
Students are expected to dress in a neat manner observing prevailing rules of modesty and decency. Student dress/hair that is bizarre, offensive to others, and distracting will be regulated by the school.
Some suggested guidelines for school dress are as follows:
- Clothing should be appropriate for business wear, both in material and style, excluding extremes of every kind.
- Clothes should be neat, clean, and in good repair.
- Hair should be neat, clean, and styled so it does not obstruct vision at any time and must be confined close to the head while working around hazardous areas.
- Proper foot wear must be worn at all times.
- All clothing must be fingertip length or longer.
