Is there a dress code?
Our school uniform defines us as a community and creates a professional environment.  It is the responsibility of each student to come prepared for school in a correct and complete school uniform. School uniforms include:

  • Red, navy or grey polos, or an Eliot-Hine shirt
  • Khaki or navy bottoms (no jeans or denim)
  • Closed toed shoes that secure the whole foot (no slip-ons)
  • Outerwear that is solid navy, red, or grey OR any Eliot-Hine outerwear.

 Items not permitted

  • Hats
  • Ski masks, scullies, durags, and hair bonnets
  • Open toed or slip on shoes
  • Coats
  • Multi-color or non-Eliot-Hine outerwear                   

Students arriving out of uniform will receive a parent phone call and will be required to borrow and wear a school provided uniform and the students will be charged a rental fee to be covered with ERIC points.

Are there lockers?
Yes, students are given a locker to use. Students must provide their own lock. Locks may be cut by maintenance or school staff.

What is the lunch period like?
Students may bring their lunch or purchase school lunch. Students eat together in the cafeteria, located in the lower level of the school building. On certain days, there are lunchtime clubs that allow students to take their meal with them to the Media Center or to the Reflection Room (a room right off the cafeteria). All students have a recess as part of their lunch period.
