Dress Code (Grades 6-12)

Dress/Grooming

Although dress reflects personal and family choice, students’ dress should be appropriate for school.  Students should dress in a manner,    which will not distract others from learning nor be offensive in nature. The administrative staff may address any other concerns at their discretion. All staff members are expected to assist in monitoring students.  Students wearing inappropriate clothing will be sent to an assistant principal. Grooming is a personal matter that should take place in the privacy of your own home or in the restroom.
