Welcome to SCC
We are so excited to welcome you to our school community. Listed below is important information regarding our uniform policy as well as New York State immunization requirements.
Students must be in full uniform upon entering homeroom, and they must remain so for the entire school day. Students who are out of uniform as determined by the administrator will be assigned detention and/or phone calls home.
The administration may refuse to allow a student to attend classes until the student is in uniform. In these cases, the parent or guardian of the student may be called to either bring in the needed uniform attire or to bring the student home to change. Students may lose the privilege of participating in dress-down days.
Students need to be aware that when they are in full uniform, they must act in a respectful and appropriate manner, whether it is during school hours or while in the community. Students need to take pride in the wearing of their school uniform and the school that they represent.
Shirt: All students must wear the official dress code white polo shirt with the purple school logo from Student Styles (long-sleeved or short-sleeved). Students are not allowed to wear any other polo shirt. The shirt must be tucked into the trousers or skirt at all times. Male students may only wear either a solid white or light gray t-shirt under the official school polo. Female students may wear either a solid white or light gray camisole/undergarment or t-shirt under the official school polo.
Pants & Skirt: Student Styles has one style of navy blue plaid skirt for SCCS. No other styles are to be worn. Skirts must be no shorter than a credit card length above the knee. Grey trousers are purchased through Student Styles. Flat front as well as pleated styles are available. Girls and boys may both wear pants. No other pants are to be worn.
Navy Blue Pullover: Use of the school pullovers are optional during the school year. Students are not allowed to wear any other sweater or sweatshirt over their school polo shirt.
Belt: Black web belts from Student Styles must be worn with pants at all times. No other color or style of belt will be permitted.
Socks: Girls must wear knee-high navy blue socks or navy blue tights. Tights may not be ripped or patterned. Boys may wear any color socks.
Shoes: Shoes are to be all black, including any logos. Open-toe, sandals, flip flops or boots are not permitted.
Jewelry: Extreme or excessive jewelry (i.e., facial rings, nose piercings, body piercing, etc.) will not be allowed.
Hair & Headwear: Hair must be neat and clean. No extreme hair styles or colors will be allowed. No head wear of any kind may be worn during the school day.
All garments with the exception of shoes should be purchased through Student Styles by Smith, Inc. (518-220-9244)
New York State Immunization Requirements
New York State Changes Immunization Exemption Rules: June 13, 2019
On June 13, 2019, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation removing non-medical exemptions from school vaccination requirements for children. By eliminating this exemption, state officials hope to address the worst measles outbreak in more than 25 years.
Parent Notification of NYS Law Requiring Attestation for Independent Carry and Use Of Emergency Medications
New York State law, Article 19, now allows students with respiratory conditions, allergies, and/or diabetes the right to independently carry and use their inhaled respiratory rescue medications; epinephrine auto-injectors; and insulin, glucagon, and related diabetes supplies if the following is provided to the school:
Written permission from the parent/guardian; and written provider order with an attestation stating both the diagnosis, and that the student has demonstrated they can effectively administer the medication(s).
Independent carry and use of medications means that your child will take their own medicine without any help. The school will not know if your child takes his/her medicine. If you want your child to independently carry and use a medication listed above during the school day or at school sponsored events, you will need to ask their health care provider to put in writing (attest), that they have watched your child use the medication correctly. We may ask you to have your provider write another order with the required information if it is not on the medication order you bring to school.
If your child has signed up for a sport:
The student must have a current (within the last 12 months) physical exam on file in the nurse’s office, prior to the first practice. This physical must be completed by a NYS physician, physician’s assistant or a nurse practitioner.
A pre-participation/interval athletic form is also required unless a physical exam was done within 30 days of the start of the sport season. You may download and print the form below:
Any student who fails to provide necessary documentation and completion of all health requirements will not be granted clearance to play.
If you have any questions regarding forms needed by our school, please feel free to reach our to our school nurse.
