cumberland co schools Students will not have to wear uniforms in Cumberland County public schools in the coming school year.

School uniform requirements will be waived for the 2022-23 term, according to a news release from Cumberland County Schools.

The pause is the result of supply-chain problems that the district has verified with major retailers in the area.

“Some stores said that it would likely be late September or October before they received sufficient inventory,” according to the news release.

Parents of children who attend schools that usually require uniforms may choose to dress their children in uniforms, but there will be no penalties for students who don’t wear a uniform.

The student dress code will remain in effect for all students, meaning their attire must be school-appropriate, the release said.
The Board of Education waived the dress code and uniform policy in the 2020-21 school year because of the financial impact of COVID-19 on families.
