Uniform Policy

The purpose of our uniform policy is to support Muwekma Ohlone Middle School’s Bear Pride, enhance school safety, improve the learning environment and promote positive behavior and self-identity. 

We have a clothes closet where gently used and new items are available for Ohlone students. 
Laundry facilities are also available for students that need assistance.
