Does my child need clothes?

  • Does my child need clothes?

    No.  When your son or daughter is admitted they will shower and their clothing and other personal items will be inventoried and placed in a personal property bag.  If he/she is wearing tennis shoes, they will be allowed to keep them.  Clean underwear, t-shirt, socks and a blue jumpsuit will be issued; females will also be issued a bra.
