Uniform Policy

The uniform policy enhances the learning atmosphere, increases a sense of pride and community, and reduces competition among students.  Hill-Murray students are expected to dress in a way that demonstrates a positive self-image and an attitude of excellence in performance and achievement.  All Hill-Murray students are expected to be in full school uniform each day.  Neatness, cleanliness and modesty should be observed at all times.  Hill-Murray uniforms can be purchased at Donalds.
