Dress Code

Dress Code

A safe and disciplined learning environment is essential to a quality educational program.  District-wide standards on student attire are intended to help students concentrate on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems and improve school order and safety.  The Board recognizes that students have a right to express themselves through dress and personal appearance: however, students shall not wear apparel that is deemed disruptive or potentially disruptive to the classroom environment or to the maintenance of a safe and orderly school.

Any student deemed in violation of the dress code shall be required to change into appropriate clothing, make arrangements to have appropriate clothing brought to school or may be sent home to change.
