Parents and Guardians,

For the 2022-2023 school year, we will not require students to wear uniforms to Chestnut Oaks  Middle School. After surveying local businesses, we have found that uniforms may not be widely available. Therefore, to prevent placing a burden on parents, we are suspending the uniform requirement for the upcoming school year. Although students are not required to wear uniforms, they must follow the district’s student dress code. I have included a copy of the dress code policy and we also have copies available for pickup at school. 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Jenaii D. Edwards

Proud Principal

Chestnut Oaks Middle School

How can my child get a district-issued Chromebook?
• Sumter School District’s One-to-Global initiative provides a technology device for each student in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade.
• Students who are having issues with technology will be provided with avenues to contact the school media specialist or Chromebook manager for technical support. This will include issues with internet, applications, software, and technology tools.
