Dress and Personal Grooming: Carver Uniform Policy

Carver's goal is to foster students that are prepared academically to achieve at high levels in high school and college. We ask for the parent's support in students maintaining a "uniform look" (see below for uniform guidelines). 

At this time, we are unable to predict all fashion and personal grooming trends and will adjust the guidelines as needed. TPS Board Policy 2601 and 2601-R will be the minimum guideline followed by Carver Middle School.

The uniform policy will be enforced. If you have questions about appropriate dress, please contact the Carver main office before making purchases.

    • Solid colors only - purple, black, gray or white
    • Long or short sleeve
