Emerson is latest Minneapolis public school to require uniforms
The decision came after a vote that showed a majority of families supported such a dress code
July 25, 2022
Students walking into Emerson Dual Language Elementary school in Loring Park this fall won't be wearing any neon-colored shirts or tops featuring their favorite superheroes.
That's because the magnet school is the latest in Minneapolis Public Schools to implement a dress code, requiring its students to pair a solid-colored top in either red, blue, black or white with blue, black or khaki pants. That decision came after a schoolwide vote that showed 55% of families were in favor of adding uniforms.
"My thought on uniforms has always been that it needs to be a community decision," said Emerson Principal Jim Clark.
