Why a Dress Code? To promote a safe environment that is aligned with our school vision of expanding the pursuit of excellence. The dress code reflects a minimum standard of grooming and dress that reflects the respect for the formality of the learning environment. In our efforts to maximize teaching and learning, we have listed outliers that will not be allowed.
Students who are improperly dressed are not allowed to attend class. Violators of the dress code will be placed in an alternative setting for the remainder of the day or until proper clothing is obtained.
As a general rule of thumb, avoid the 3 “B’s”: Bellies, Breasts, and Bottoms. Exposure of any of the “B’s” will be addressed. Students must be fully clothed at all times.
