Wilson's Words of Wisdom

ATTENDANCE: Please remember that it is the parent/guardian responsibility to inform the office when

your student will not be in school. If you only inform the teacher, it is not the teacher’s responsibility to

inform the office for you. It is more important to inform the office of an absence.

DRESS CODE: Dress code has long been a problem here at East Broadway. Though the District provides

the dress code, schools don’t always enforce it because of the immense issue that it is and the time it

takes out of the school day. The biggest issue at East Broadway is the form-fitting

tights/leggings/jeggings. The Dress Code says: “Tight, form- fitting clothing is not permitted. Tights and

leggings are allowed if the front and back are covered by a long shirt, skirt or dress.” It has been very

hard this year because parents/guardians/students complain that they didn’t know about the Dress

Code, etc. It is posted on the TPS website and on the East Broadway page. This is especially an issue with

the girls and when it is brought to their attention or to the attention of an adult, it becomes a bigger

issue. It appears that the Dress Code will remain the same for next year.

The second biggest issue with Dress Code is holes/tears in pants. The policy states: “Holes/tears in jeans

are NOT permitted, unless the holes are BELOW the fingertips when the arms are fully extended.” Just

to clarify, a hole is a hole whether there is material under the hole or not. A tear is a tear whether you

wear something underneath the tear. A tear is NOT a tear when it is sewn or a patch covers it.

It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian/student (depending on age) to be aware and to follow the

TPS School District Dress Code. At the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year, these rules and the other

rules in the policy will be strictly enforced. As a reminder, if an individual school sees that there are

issues/concerns/abuses of different parts of the Policy, they can make their own rules concerning any

part of the policy. As it is right now, East Broadway supports and will enforce the TPS Dress Code Policy

going forward.
