Message from Principal Loveland
As the beautiful spring and summer weather begins to arrive, I would like to ask you all to review the dress code policy with your students. The policy is listed below. Common dress code infractions to watch out for include the following:
- See-through clothing
- Half shirts (crop tops, midriffs)
- Short shorts
- Tank tops
Lastly, we have observed some instances of unsafe student driving on Wamogo Road and in the parking lot this year. Please know that we have a zero tolerance policy for any unsafe driving practices. Students that choose to pass cars, drive in excessive speeds, or commit other unsafe driving infractions will be strictly disciplined up to and including suspension from school and/or driving privileges. The safety of all students and staff at Wamogo is our number one priority. If your student drives to school, please speak with him/her about safe driving practices. If you observe any student exhibiting unsafe driving practices, please report it to the main office with as much detail as possible.
Thank you for your continued support!
The purpose of stressing appropriate clothing for students is to create an atmosphere at school that is conducive to learning. Students at Wamogo are expected to dress in a manner that will not interfere with instruction or endanger the safety of others or themselves. The following are specific infractions to the dress code policy:
Clothing with offensive or threatening messaging including, but not limited to, drugs, alcohol and weapons
no more than approximately 3" above the knee
At the discretion of building staff, students who wear inappropriate clothing to school or school-related activities will be subject to administrative action.
Students who fail to comply with regulations concerning student dress will be subject to school discipline up to and including expulsion in accordance with the Board's policy on student discipline.
School administrators, at their discretion, may make changes to the list below. Students who wear inappropriate clothing in school or to after school events will be subject to administrative action, including but not limited to the following:
• request of student to change clothing;
• request of parent to bring to school a change of clothing for student;
• removal of student from class;
• in-school suspension, suspension or expulsion.
