Dress Code Policy

Students, staff, volunteers and visitors are the School community. This Dress Code is for and by the Community. It must be evaluated each year through cooperative planning so that community standards are kept current. This code, with current community standards, must be clearly posted (revised 4/2001).

As a member of the community, each person will show respect for themselves and others safety by not wearing clothing that have offensive, distracting, disrespectful, or unsafe symbols or written messages.

As a member of the community, each person will take responsibility for applying the Dress Code consistently.

As a member of the community, each person has the right and responsibility to make a polite request that the Dress Code be honored. If it is not honored, a student may be cited with a violation and may call home to get appropriate clothing, wear a P.E. uniform, or wear clothing provided by the office.

School is your place of business.
