Land's End and New Dennis Uniforms
- Land’s End will continue to be an approved clothing vender for FBCA. Clothing from Land’s End is available only through online ordering, click here. Please remember to use the Preferred School Number: 900191537.
- The school has not approved any additional vendors for school uniforms for 2022-2023
- Hoodies may only be worn on Fridays (all grades) with an approved/appropriate shirt underneath. Dennis Uniforms and Land’s End provides many options for outerwear for students that may be worn Monday-Thursday.
- The school has designed a T-shirt for elementary and secondary (different designs) that may be worn on Fridays and should be worn on field trips for the elementary students.
- The Friday T-shirt should be ordered directly from Ace T-shirts either in store or online (Ace T-shirts located at 2120 Catalina Ave., TX 77503.) Online ordering information will be coming soon via a school email.
- All Friday T-shirts must be ordered directly through this resource. Ace will handle all transactions and will mail the product directly to the customer’s home. (The school will not be involved this year with the order or distribution of shirts.)
- Approved Friday shirts include:
- Shirts designed by the FBCA Booster Club.
- Club shirts released by FBCA to secondary students (prior and current year shirts)
- 21-22 Field Day shirts and Mini Cheer Camp shirts.
- Images of approved shirts are coming soon to the website for additional clarification.
- Clothing for physical education classes for grades 6-8 will be ordered by parents directly through Dennis Uniform. Select the grey shirt titled Classic Active T-shirt or Moisture Wicking Crew Neck along with the navy Micromesh gym shorts. Every student in grades 6-8 will need to purchase a pair of shorts and shirt for physical education class. Clothing for students in grades 9-12 will continue to be purchased directly from the school. Families who have P.E. Uniform pieces from Ace t-shirts can continue to wear them. Thank you so much for your support for our dress code. Please note that this does not require parents to discard all the previous clothing items that still fit their student and to purchase an entirely new inventory of clothing for their children. Most clothing worn last year continues to be acceptable provided these few changes listed above.
The Dress Code is designed for these purposes:
- To train students to dress in a conservative, traditional, and modest fashion.
- To create a positive disciplined environment in the school.
- To assist students in concentrating on academic achievement rather than on clothing competition.
- To eliminate immodest or inappropriate fashions.
- To help reduce peer pressure.
- To help parents and students with financial stewardship.
- To create a positive image in the community.
- To provide an opportunity to show and teach respect for authority.
The cooperation of the student and parent is necessary in maintaining the standards of the dress code. A student’s appearance is a family responsibility. Therefore, any actions taken by FBCA to enforce the dress code will be primarily directed toward the parent, even though such action will impact the student himself.
Dress Code Compliance:
Dress code compliance is about attitude. We believe that dress standards will be required throughout life. It is our goal to teach compliance and encourage cooperation because it simply is the right and appropriate course of behavior. Students who “fight” the system are learning habits which will have negative outcomes on into adulthood. Therefore, dress code violations will be addressed as noted in the Conduct System.
Free Dress Days:
On “free dress” days students should wear clothes that maintain modesty. Shirts must have sleeves, cover the midriff area and show no cleavage. Shorts and skirts should not be shorter than 3 inches above the crease of the back of the knee. Shoes should follow the regular uniform guidelines with the exception that flip flops may be worn. Pants/jeans should follow regular guidelines and not be too tight or have holes. Pajamas, sweats, and slippers are not permitted, but caps are allowed (facing forward).
Administration reserves the right to make the final decision concerning dress and hair codes on “free dress” days.
