New Dress Code Policies:

While the style of clothing and personal appearance of each student generally is a matter of taste, some standards of dress and appearance are necessary. While we recognize that appearance is a matter of self-respect and a matter of respect of others, the faculty and administration have a responsibility and an obligation to enforce a dress code that provides for the students' health, personal hygiene, safety, and effective education.

Please note that these guidelines will be emphasized and strictly enforced at all school functions. Students are not permitted to wear the following:

  1. head coverings (with the exception of religious purposes), hats, hoods covering the head, or sunglasses

  2. see-through garments, exposed midriffs, strapless tops, spaghetti straps, low cut shirts that show cleavage, pajamas, lounge wear, house shoes/slippers or muscle shirts

  3. clothing that has an intimidating message or a disruption to class

  4. clothing that reveals undergarments

  5. makeup deemed excessive or distracting

  6. any potentially dangerous items, such as necklaces, bracelets, rings, or items with sharp or protruding objects, exposed chains of any kind including but not limited to wallet chains

  7. hairstyles deemed as a distraction in a learning environment

  8. shorter length shorts and skirts

  9. articles of clothing which promote the use of any alcoholic beverages, drugs, tobacco products, or violence/weapons

  10. clothing which contains sexually suggestive language, pictures, inappropriate language, or gang related items

  11. any other dress or style that interferes with the educational process as deemed by the administration

Consequences for violations of the Dress Code could include, but are not limited to:

1st Offense - Student warning from an administrator / teacher and change of apparel from locker or nurse’s office

2nd Offense – Change apparel and receive detention

3rd & Subsequent - Repeated violations are considered insubordination and will result in more serious consequences.

Football Game Policy Reminder

Sycamore High School will host Hamilton High for the first official home game of the 2016-2017 football season on Friday, September 16. We are excited to welcome fans to another exciting year of Aves football.

The safety and security of our students, staff, and guests is our highest priority. As a reminder, no bags or opened bottles are permitted inside Sycamore Stadium.

We’d like to thank the Montgomery Police Department for their assistance at all home games. You may notice an increased police presence at Friday’s game in light of recent events at schools in the area. This is simply a precautionary measure to assure a safe, welcoming environment for everyone.

If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact any members of our administrative team, who will be wearing their official Sycamore identification badges. "
