Dress Code Reminders

As the weather changes, please remind your student to dress for the weather. According to the student handbook, blankets and hats are not allowed.

Also, ripped pants have become very popular. However, the rips may not be above mid-thigh. Students not following the dress code will be required to change into clean clothes from our dress code closet.
