Jackets must have the hood tucked in at all times. Students who repeatedly violate this campus policy may have their jacket confiscated. Parents will be called to come pick it up.


Friday Blue Jeans and Spirit Shirts: On Friday, students may wear blue jeans and spirit shirts to school. We are getting the order form ready for the sale of our 2017-2018 spirit shirts. Students may wear a previous year’s spirit shirt or their uniform shirt with jeans until the order goes out.

Medication: If you would like your student to take medication at school please make sure to fill out the form and turn it into the front office, so medication can be distributed. You can find the form in the front office.

Uniform Reminders:

Shirts: We have plenty of uniform shirts available for purchase at the front office. Students must be in a Harmony uniform shirt. Plain red shirts are no longer acceptable.

Pants 4th-6th: Pants must have belt loops and be worn with a belt. Pants with elastic waist bands are a dress code violation. Joggers, leggings, and tights are also not acceptable per the student handbook.

Dress Code Violations: Students will be issued dress code violations during their homeroom classes in the morning for being out of dress code. A form detailing the specific infraction will be sent home. Please sign and return this form if you receive one. Consistent dress code violations can incur disciplinary action.

That starts with having affordable and available internet access at home.
