Some schools and school districts in Colorado have decided to adopt uniforms for their students. Decisions for implementing a uniform policy are varied, but if your district decides to adopt a uniform policy, it’s a perfect opportunity to consider sun safety.
Sun safe uniforms could include:
- A collared shirt with sleeves
- Pants or long shorts
- A wide-brimmed or Legionnaire-style hat for outdoor activities
- Socks and close-toed shoes
Involve student representatives in the uniform selection process. Avoid trends that will quickly go out of style. Allow students some room for creativity with accessories.
