Spring is Here

Spring is here and the weather is changing! Because nice weather brings out tank tops and shorts, this is a great opportunity to review the Paola Middle School Dress Code Policy & expectations. As parents of middle school aged children, you are probably well aware that personal appearance guidelines are difficult to interpret because clothing decisions may be a result of fashion trends and personal needs and tastes. Keeping this in mind, we ask that parents and students follow the following guidelines to ensure that clothing and/or appearance does not distract from the purpose of school.

*DRESS CODE: Clothing that is revealing, excessively ripped, advertises or encourages inappropriate behavior is not permitted. Recommended length of shorts is mid-thigh. Hats, caps, and other head-coverings will not be worn. Pants and tops must be worn in an appropriate manner so that no undergarments are exposed or showing. The midriff area will not be exposed. School personnel reserve the right to ask a student to change any clothing/jewelry that disrupts, distracts, offends or is a safety hazard to others.
