Dress Code 411
Here is a quick go to for what is deemed acceptable dress code attire. Please make sure you follow these at all times, lost class instruction and even lost work time on your parents part needs to be avoided.
A dress code has been established to minimize economic and competitive differences among students. All students will be required to wear specified school attire. The students are expected to follow the adopted dress code policy and to exercise good hygiene every day. The Director or designee will make the determination if the student is in violation of the dress code. A dress code violation will result in, but is not limited to, one or more of the following consequences: warning, detention, and call to parents in case of questionable dress (not covered in the rules listed below). The Director or Designee will make a final decision.
