Dress Code

PERSONAL APPEARANCE

We strongly adhere to the district’s dress code which was established to promote discipline, respect, and responsibility among all students and to maintain an appropriate school environment. Students are expected to come to school looking neat, clean, and dressed in a manner, which is acceptable as being good taste.  Clothing which is bizarre or designed to call undue attention to the individual is not allowed.  Refer to school district dress code policy (Section XIII).

 

Dress and grooming have a definite bearing on attitude and behavior. Learning how to dress within the boundaries of decency, modesty, responsibility, and social acceptability is a part of each student’s education and should be practiced at school and while participating in extracurricular activities.
