What to Wear to School

It is primarily the parent’s responsibility to monitor their student’s dress before leaving home and entering school.
The student and parent will be contacted regarding any violation.

  • Parents bear the primary responsibility for dress code.
  • First time violations will receive a note home indicating what the problem was. This must be signed by a parent and returned the following day.
  • Subsequent violations will result in the student being withheld from class until the proper attire is brought to school for the student to wear.
  • Hair violations will be cause for the student’s removal from class until corrections or modifications can be made to comply with the dress code.
