Dress Code

Dress Code

DRESS AND GROOMING

The administration will reserve the right to judge on all matters concerning appearance/dress code.  If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school.  Loss of instructional time due to a dress code violation will be minimized.  Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.

 

If in doubt as to the appropriateness of the article of clothing or other aspect of the dress and grooming regulations, contact the principal in advance for an interpretation to avoid corrective action. The administration reserves the right to adjust the dress code as needed at any time with prior notification.

 

The dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption of the instructional environment, and minimize safety hazards.  Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:
