It is the principal’s responsibility to make final decisions regarding dress code issues. Parents agree to encourage their children to adhere to the school’s dress code.  We are not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen property.

Enforcement: Parents are responsible for ensuring that their children are properly dressed for school each day and will need to bring proper attire to school for their student if the student is out of dress code.  Since no dress code can address all the changing fads in clothing and attire, the final decision regarding dress code issues rests with the administration.

One objective of wearing uniforms is to create an environment that raises student awareness that we are in a school setting which focuses on learning and academics.  We believe that concentrating on developing character and positive personality traits (rather than being distracted by an emphasis on style and clothing fads at school) will serve students better in becoming more interesting and successful in the future.
