It is the Principal’s responsibility to make final decisions regarding dress School Policy. Parents agree to encourage their children to adhere to the school’s policies.

Enforcement: Students out of dress code may not attend class. 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 through dress code will serve our students best.

Thank you for supporting our focus on learning and maintaining a positive, safe environment for everyone.
