Why A Dress Code?

The purpose of the dress code is to encourage neatness and a sense of appropriate attire in each student and to be a symbol to the local community.  Therefore, each student is expected to observe dress regulations upon arrival at school, during the school day, and upon leaving school at the conclusion of the day.  The dress code is also to be observed on all school-sponsored field trips unless other instructions are provided.

General Uniform Guidelines

Uniforms are to be worn as purchased and intended–alterations are not permitted. Collars must be down, bottoms must be worn at the waist, buttons are to be buttoned, shoes are to be laced and worn properly, and belts through the belt loops. Shorts and Skorts must be no shorter than three inches above the knee where the knee is defined as the top of the student’s kneecap. Uniforms must fit as intended (i.e. may not be raggedy or torn and should not be altered or shortened). Students must be in uniform upon their arrival on campus. Changing into uniforms in school bathrooms or lockers upon arrival is not allowed. Failure to comply with uniform guidelines will result in immediate detention and/or further disciplinary actions including having a parent report to campus to either remove the student from campus or bring the proper uniform if one cannot be attained.
