Student Dress Code

As the weather is getting nicer, reminder to all about our student dress code found in the Family Reference Guide:

Students are expected to be dressed appropriately while in the school each day. While this may mean different things depending on weather, activities, and more, the following general guidelines should always be followed:

  • Students should be covered from shoulders to thighs in solid material.

  • Undergarments should be completely covered at all times.

  • Clothing should not contain any inappropriate or profane language or references to drugs, tobacco, or alcohol, or violence.

  • Clothing should not pose any kind of safety risk.
