It's that time of year again, it's back to school time. After what might have felt like the longest break ever, students across the borderland will be making their return to classrooms this fall semester. First day of school is August 2nd!

While many parents and students are looking forward to returning to school, I know for sure that they are not looking forward to returning to a morning routine. I don't know about you guys, but at my house, getting my nephews up for school in the morning is a huge spectacle! One of the main things that is always sure to ruin the day is their uniform! No matter how much we can plan the night before, somehow the uniform is sure to be a hassle.

If your morning routine looks a little like ours, then you'll be glad to know that EPISD has updated their uniform policies which aim to ease the financial burden to families. In a letter, they made the announcement. The letter reads:

"Dear Parents,
In an effort to ease the financial burden the return to classes may create on families, EPISD is altering its uniform policies for the 2021-22 school year.
Elementary and middle schools with uniform policies will allow students to wear jeans as well as khakis, as long as the jeans do not have tears or holes in them. Students may also wear school T-shirts or T-shirts with the school colors instead of polo shirts. Shirts may be purchased at any location.
High schools will continue to use the approved dress code for the 2021-22 school year.
If you have any questions regarding the uniform or dress code policies, please contact your child’s school."
