Uniform Dress Code Policy

The reason for our dress code is that we believe students can better express their individuality and ideas in a community that ignores the pressures of fashion, style and expense. Our dress code provides structure for our academic endeavors and minimizes the peer pressures and stress so often connected with dress issues. The way we dress symbolizes our unity of purpose and the equality of our educational opportunity in this community.

Teachers and administrators will pay particular attention to enforcing the dress code. A note will be sent home with your child if they are not following the dress code. Please refer to the parent’s handbook for specifications.
