Uniforms All students at AIS are expected to abide by our uniform code. There are no exceptions. Uniforms should be neat, clean, and in good repair. Students’ personal appearance should reflect a respect for their school and the community. Students are expected to dress in a manner that is not distracting to teachers and/or other students. Hats/caps are not permitted. Teachers should be proactive in making parents/students aware of these rules if students are not coming to school appropriately dressed. Shoes should be well fitting, completely attached to the feet and must conform to the dress code. Bare feet or slippers are not allowed.
