Avondale thrives on the involvement of families and community partners. Here are some helpful assets to reinforce our students’ academic and interpersonal experiences.


Dress Code

When in-school instruction resumes, please use these guidelines.

  • Uniforms are to be worn all day every day, except for designated dress down days or special days. The faculty and PTA will determine these dates. If a student chooses not to participate on the designated dress down day, he or she must wear a uniform all day.
  • Uniform shirts need to be tucked in at all times.
  • The DeKalb County School dress code will apply at all times.
  • Jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts are prohibited, (except for special days previously mentioned.)
  • Uniforms will be kept clean and in good repair.
  • Uniform assistance is available if needed. Please contact the principal for details.

Tops for Boys and Girls

  • Color options: solids only — white, navy, light blue or yellow
  • Polo-type shirts with collars and buttons in both long and short sleeves. No symbols or text.
  • Belts are to be worn with pants.

Bottom Choices for Boys

  • No jeans or denim-style fabrics.
  • Pants in navy or khaki.
  • Shorts in navy or khaki.

Bottom Choices for Girls

  • No jeans or denim-style fabrics.
  • Pants in navy or khaki.

  • Jumper in navy or khaki.

Shoes and Socks

  • Dark colored, closed-toed shoes are to be worn.
  • On PE days, students must wear some type of tennis shoe (sport or athletic shoe of any kind). These shoes must not have heels. Students can choose to wear tennis shoes every day. If they wear another type of shoe on non-PE days, they should have rubber soles and closed toes. These rules were set for the safety of our children; leather soles can be very slippery.
  • Crocs® or similar, non-traditional shoe types are prohibited, as are sandals.
  • Shoes with heels or wheels, or that light up are not considered acceptable uniform attire.
  • Socks must be worn every day. Multicolored socks prohibited.

Uniform Purchase

  • School uniforms can be purchase from retail outlets including Walmart, Target, Old Navy,
  • Popular brands include French Toast and the Children’s Place; this is not a requirement or endorsement, as there are many suitable manufacturers.
