YES Prep will waive uniform policy for students for Fall Semester. YES Prep understands the COVID-19 pandemic has created or increased the economic challenges our families face. We hope that relaxing the uniform requirement will provide some relief for families as they prepare for this school year. Students will follow the "free dress" policy outlined in our Campus Supplement. Within this guidance, students still have the option of wearing YES Prep issued uniform. We will use first semester to gather input from out students and families to make a decision regarding uniforms for the Spring Semester and ensure family voice and values and included in the long-term policy.

Fall Semester Super Dress Policy

On super free dress days, clothing should meet the following criteria:  

  • T-shirts are acceptable, however all clothing and accessories must be school appropriate: YES Prep prohibits pictures, emblems, or writings on T-shirts that are lewd, offensive, vulgar or obscene or that advertise or depict tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or any other substance, show gang affiliation, or depict violence in any way.  
  • No tank tops, halter tops, tube tops, net or sheer tops, shirts with spaghetti straps, or strapless tops for any student.  
  • No bare midriffs (half shirts) allowed for any student.  
  • No open-toed shoes.
