Ziegler 23-24 School Plan

We encourage all stakeholders to review your school’s plan and to complete a feedback form, which is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, and Arabic.


Uniforms for Academies

Uniforms are required every day unless it is a spirit week or dress-down day.

We will have three academies this year.  K-2 will wear a yellow collared shirt, 3-5 will wear a light blue collared shirt, and 6-8 will wear a navy blue collared shirt.  All students must wear khaki or navy blue uniform pants.  Leggings and jeans are not considered uniform.  Shoes must be sneakers or closed-toe shoes.  Slides and Crocs are not allowed as they are a safety issue.

Ziegler t-shirts can be purchased for $10 to be worn on gym days.
