Student Dress Code

The purpose of a dress code is not to inhibit any person's taste in attire, but rather to better facilitate the process of education through reasonable guidelines of "dress." Instilling dignity, pride, modesty, and cleanliness are our goals.

The principal has the authority to determine appropriate dress.

Violation of Dress Code is deemed inappropriate school behavior and is a Level One Offense in the Code of Conduct - #18.
