Student/Parent Handbook

The Student/Parent Handbook contains all the important information needed for a successful school year, including information about the dress code, academic requirements, behavior policies and more.

Student/Parent Handbook


Herron and Riverside High School’s uniform requirements are intended to promote a better learning environment and increase academic achievement by fostering school spirit, reducing socio economic differences, and most importantly, enhancing student safety. Herron and Riverside High School believe that students should be judged on the merits of their actions, not on the labels or expense of their clothing. To ensure a more orderly, fair society, students are expected to be in uniform at all times during the school day.

All uniforms may be purchased at Schoolbelles, 6315 N Keystone Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46220, or online at with school code S2275. Pants, shorts, skorts and Herron/Riverside outerwear must be purchased from Schoolbelles. Crewnecks, belts, shoes, polo shirts, thermal layering and socks may be purchased elsewhere provided they meet the requirements

The other dress code guidelines may be found in the Student Handbook.
