Dress Code

Appropriate student dress helps the school maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning not only during school hours, but also at all school functions.

Clothing and accessories that display undesirable and/or unhealthy images (such as, but not limited to, alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, violence, or gang-related symbols) do not belong in a school setting. Also inappropriate are depictions of vulgar actions/language/behavior, gang signs, or sexually suggestive pictures or statements. Any obvious combinations of current gang colors will not be allowed. These policies will be strongly enforced.

A determination that a student’s dress is inappropriate will be made by the principal, assistant principal, or police liaison officer. The following guidelines are used in determining whether the attire is appropriate. They include, but are not limited to:

  • No bare midriffs.
  • No bare or lace-up backs.
  • Cover buttocks and all undergarments
  • Shoulders must be covered by at least two inches of fabric.
  • Shorts should measure no less than 8 inches above the knee (5 - 7 inch inseam on shorts)
  • Skirts must not be shorter than 6 inches above the knee.
  • Tops may not be lower than an imaginary line drawn from armpit to armpit.
  • No hats, hoods or bandanas are to be worn inside the building except when entering or preparing to leave the building unless they are for religious or medical purposes.
  • The dress code applies to school field trips and all school events

For safety reasons, students should follow these guidelines:

  • Footwear which is safe for indoor and outdoor physical activity should be worn at all times. (Shoes with wheels are not allowed; platform shoes and thong-style sandals are discouraged.)
  • No belts, necklaces, or bracelets with spikes or chains, including chains connecting wallets to a belt.
  • No pants or skirts that drag on the floor.
  • No coats, jackets, or other outerwear in the classroom.

cellphone policy

Student possession and/or use of cellphones and other electronic devices while at school is governed by Board of Education Policy 7:190 Student Behavior. Here is the excerpt related to cell phones:

The school administration is authorized to discipline students for gross disobedience or misconduct including, but not limited to:

  • Using or possessing a cellular phone, video recording device, or other electronic device in any manner that disrupts the educational environment or violates the rights of others, including using the device to take photographs in locker rooms or bathrooms, cheat, or otherwise violate student conduct rules. Prohibited conduct specifically includes, without limitation, creating, sending, sharing, viewing, receiving, or possessing an indecent visual depiction of oneself or another person through the use of a computer, electronic communication device, or cellular telephone.
  • All electronic devices (i.e., cell phones, earbuds, headphones, cellular wrist devices, etc.) must be kept powered-off and kept in the locker during the regular school day unless: (a) use of the device is provided in a student’s individualized education program (IEP); or (b) it is needed in an emergency that threatens the safety of students, staff, or other individuals

Warriors Wear Masks

Per Governor Pritzker's Executive Order, all students, staff and visitors at any K-12 schools in the State of Illinois are required to wear masks.

Self-Certification

Parents and guardians, please make sure that you are screening your student(s) daily for COVID-like symptoms before sending them to school and asking the self-certification questions in the back of the lanyards. If your student or anyone in the household is experiencing any symptoms please keep them at home and have them get tested.

Chromebook Reminders

Students should be charging their Chromebooks nightly. We encourage familes to create a system that everynight at a certain hour, the student puts their Chromebook to charge as they pack their backpack for the following day.

Reporting an Absence

If your student will be absent for any reason, please give us a call on the attendance line.
