BFS has a school uniform, which reflects the style of smart/casual attire found in the United States. Our policy is based on the beliefs that the school uniform:
- promotes a sense of pride, community, inclusion, and belonging in our school;
- identifies our students with the school using a cohesive image;
- prevents students from wearing ‘fashion clothes’ that could be distracting or promote competition; and
- is practical and designed with health and safety in mind.
The required BFS uniform items are:
All Grades – Every Day:
- Navy polo shirt (long or short sleeve)
- Khaki pants/shorts or plaid skirt/jumper
- Shark hoodie(optional)
High School – Formal Days:
- White Oxford shirt
- Khaki pants or plaid skirt/jumper
Please note the following:
Official BFS school uniforms are to be worn Monday through Thursday.
Friday (or the last day of a working week) is a casual day, and students may choose to wear their uniform or appropriate casual clothing. The last day of school is also a casual day.
Students should not wear low necklines, spaghetti straps, bare midriff or halter-tops.
Skirts or shorts should be longer than 2 inches (5 cm) above the knee.
The use of hats inside the school is not allowed.
Hoodies or jackets from BFS sports or activities are not considered part of the uniform.
Students may not wear open-toed shoes or sandals, including Fridays.
Students may not cover their uniforms with non-BFS jackets or coats in the classroom. In cold weather students must wear their school regulation navy blue sweaters or the approved cardigans/hoodie. If they are still cold, they may put a BFS Shark hoodie or BFS uniform logo jacket over their sweater or cardigan.
All Elementary students are also required to purchase BFS P.E. attire to wear on P.E. days (including Fridays).
Middle and High School students enrolled in P.E. courses must purchase BFS P.E. attire to wear during P.E. class only.
Proper sports shoes that have laces and good ankle and arch support are also required for P.E.
