Parents who are staying for class
On the first night of class, each student will be given a T-shirt in the size specified on their application on the first night of class. We ask that students wear their class T-shirts to every class they attend for uniformity and identification purposes. We will not have extra T-shirts to replace poorly fitting or damaged shirts, so please send students in a “like-colored” shirt if the assigned shirt cannot be worn.Students may wear long pants or shorts to class.
Students will receive a name tag on the first night of class. We ask that students wear their name tag to every class so that we may all get to know each other by name. All police officers and police explorers will be wearing name plates, and guest speakers will be given name tags as well. Parents who are staying for class are asked to use the stick-on name tags provided during check-in.
