MHS DRESS CODE
Dress Code – p 16 of the student handbook. (School Board Policy 504) – All efforts of our dress code are designed to build an educational environment founded in respect for everyone’s right to feel safe, welcome, and to be treated with dignity throughout their educational journey in our schools. The responsibility for the appearance of students’ rests with the parents and the students themselves. Students are encouraged to use mature judgement when choosing clothing to wear at school. Students have the right to choose their manner of dress and personal grooming unless it causes a disruption with work, creates a classroom or school disorder, or could be interpreted as harassment by others. Appropriate dress, including footwear, is required to be worn at all times. Clothing should non-offensive. Students in violation of this policy will be asked to change into appropriate clothing. Administrative judgment will be in effect in determining appropriate dress with school officials reserving the right to apply school consequences (including the confiscation of inappropriate clothing items) for violations of policy 504. Teachers may exercise discretion in their classrooms based upon individual situations. Clothing is defined as any item that is worn – pants, shirts, jackets, coats, hats, etc. Examples of dress that is not allowed includes, but is not limited to:
- Clothing advertising or representing substances illegal for juveniles. (Examples include but are not limited to alcohol, or any sort of chemical use)

- Hooded sweatshirts are allowed. However, hoods are not to be worn on the head during school hours due the difficulty of identification of students.
