Dress Code Reminders

Since we are no longer experiencing cold weather, it is a good time for Dress Code Reminders.


Students may only wear jackets and/or sweatshirts in white, navy blue, or black. If a student is wearing a different jacket, other than described above, they will be asked to remove it.

Sneakers are required for safety reasons. Slip on sneakers are not permitted.


Pants: Navy blue, black, or khaki uniform pants

Shorts, skorts, skirts, jumpers: Navy blue, black, or khaki uniform shorts*

Leggings may only be worn under uniform skirts. They must be solid color.


Students may wear jeans with no holes and a spirit shirt.

*Bottom of the shorts, skorts, and jumpers must meet or exceed the length of the fingertip.

Students in violation of the dress code will be sent to the clinic to receive a change of clothes. These must be washed and returned in a timely manner. Students will receive three written notices to correct dress code violations. Students will receive a consequence for each violation thereafter.
