Uniform/Dress Code

Harbor City Elementary School 2018-19 School Uniform/Dress Code Policy

Harbor City Elementary School is one of many Los Angeles Unified Schools that have adopted school uniforms. The students at Harbor City Elementary are required to follow the mandatory uniform policy, which was approved by the Harbor City Elementary School Site Council on April 19, 2010.
Starting in August, please send your child to school in complete uniform Monday-Friday


Our uniform allows for many student choices, while ensuring that students are neatly and appropriately dressed for learning.  The colors of our school uniform are Navy Blue bottoms, white or powder blue shirts (collared only).  Our uniform code is as follows:

  • Navy blue pants, shorts, skirts and navy blue plaid jumper.

  • Navy blue Harbor City jackets and Harbor City cardigan sweaters.

  • White or powder blue shirts - solid colors only

  • Harbor City Elementary School T-shirts and sweat shirts are also appropriate for uniforms

  • No logos, pictures, or writing on clothing

  • Shoes with flashing lights are very strongly discouraged.  Please remember that K-5 students have a fitness/activity period and/or PE every day. 

  • “wrong-sized clothes” – either too big or too small - may not be worn to school.

    • Skirts, dresses and shorts must be at least fingertip length

    • Un-tucked shirts should not exceed wrist length

    • Pants must fit around the waist – oversized sagging pants are not part of the school uniform

You can buy these uniform components at reasonable prices at any department store. You are not limited to any particular brand of clothing. Your child may already have items of clothing in these colors, too. Please call us if you need assistance getting a uniform.

Our school is using the following vendor, should you prefer to go to the uniform store to purchase uniforms for the 2018-19 school year. Embroidery is available at the store locations.
