  • School Uniforms

    James H. Harrison has adopted the mandatory school uniform policy. According to the mandated school uniform policy of the Prince George's County Board, the children of JHHES must wear school uniforms, which take effect on the first day of school. The uniform policy was voted to be updated by the PTA during the 2015-2016 school year. The updated uniform is provided below for boys and girls:


    • Navy Blue Tops: Polo/collared shirts (long or short sleeves), Peter Pan button up blouse for girls, and Sweaters/sweater vests for cool weather must be  completely navy blue with no logos.
    • Khaki Bottoms: Shorts, pants, skirts, jumpers, skorts, and capris (length should meet PGCPS standard dress code requirements…finger tip policy) ABSOLUTELY NO CARGO PANTS. Bottoms should fit properly and not sag below the waist (belts for all pants with belt loops), Solid color Leggings or tights are permitted underneath skirts in cold weather
    • Shoes: Students may wear their choice of rubber sole shoes. However shoe MUST BE black, blue or brown and solid color.  The following footwear options are not permitted: light-up, character, Heelys, sandals, animal print, flip flops, open toe, high heels or wedge shoes.
    • Headwear: Female students must refrain from wearing headbands that are distracting (unicorn horns, cat ears, etc.)
    We ask that shirts and blouses must be tucked into pants and skirts. Belts are required for boys. 

    **Violation of the school uniform policy will result in action in alignment with the Code of Student Conduct.
