Dress Code


Principles for good grooming and proper dress are necessary to set an atmosphere conducive to improving the learning situation.  It is primarily the parents’ responsibility to ensure that their children are applying these principles.  The guidelines listed are not to imply that this is the complete list and may include any item deemed inappropriate and/or in bad taste by the school administration.  If a student/parent/guardian has a question about a particular item, please contact the school administration BEFORE wearing the item

1.       Clothing, jewelry, or any article that advertises alcohol or tobacco, promotes drug usage, has obscenities, is sexually explicit, or has sexual implications is not permitted.
