YES Prep uniform policy is centered around the values of equity and school pride. A school uniform allows for community building and options within the uniform selection allows for student and family choice.
Tejas - YES Prep's uniform vendor
Student uniforms should be purchased through the YES Prep approved vendor website. The vendor web address is communicated during the summer prior to the start of school. Students are responsible for ordering their required uniform through this site and having a complete uniform starting the first day of school through the remainder of the school year.
Deadline and Delivery Information
Orders received between July 1-15, will be available for pick up or delivery to your home the first week of August. Orders placed from July 15-31, will be available the week of August 15 for pick up or delivery to your home. We will not be accepting ANY returns, or exchanges until August 15 (at which time all returns and exchanges must fall within return guidelines).
YES Prep will waive the uniform policy for students for the 2020 Fall Semester. YES Prep understands the COVID-19 pandemic has created or increased the economic challenges our families face. Students will follow the “free dress” policy as outlined in our Campus Supplement.
Dress Code Expectations
At YES Prep East End, we encourage students to represent their individual identity while also representing the Explorer community through their uniform. A uniform has been adopted for all YES Prep Public Schools students. The uniform promotes the concept of team that is core to the YES Prep mission, and it also reduces competition among students based on the style and expense of their clothes. Uniforms must be properly worn throughout the school day and whenever on campus. Students must also be wearing their school ID badge on a school appropriate lanyard.
A uniform shirt is defined as either a campus polo, sold by YES Prep Public Schools, containing the current school logo, and is the correct color for the student’s campus or a school pride t-shirt, distributed by the student’s school.
Additionally, YES Prep Public Schools also has winter jackets, sweatshirts, and cardigans for sale to provide multiple options for outwear. A student’s outerwear may only be YES Prep and may also include outerwear sold by the athletics department on campus.
Accessory items such as mouth grills, spiked collars, spiked bracelets, linked chains (for wallets or necklaces), spiked or studded belts, oversized accessories (necklaces, pendants) are prohibited.
For exchanges, returned merchandise can be brought to campus front office or directly to the vendor. In both cases, the vendor is responsible for supplying uniforms in the exchange.
