Uniforms

Uniforms

Uniforms are required for all students attending Christ the King School. In addition to being a convenience for both parents and students, uniforms play an important role in maintaining the proper academic atmosphere. Wherever our students go, they are identified as members of our school by the uniform they wear and our models of our commitment to modesty, safety and a distraction-free learning environment.  All boy and girl uniforms will be purchased from Christ the King Catholic School’s uniform supplier: Atlas Apparel.  Atlas Apparel (479-649-7000) is located at 1709 Towson Ave. in Fort Smith.

Any sleeveless jersey shirts require a shirt with sleeves to be worn under the jersey with uniform bottoms only. CTK Day is every Friday. Students should wear the current CTK t-shirt with uniform bottoms.

Free Dress Guidelines:

Throughout the year “free dress” days are awarded to students for a variety of reasons.  Each student is also permitted a free dress day on his/her birthday. Free dress should be in good taste and appropriate. The final decision for appropriate attire will rest with the principal. 

  • No bicycle shorts/pants
