DRESS CODE    2013-2014


(A printable form of the Dress Code is attached at the bottom of this page)


Research has proven students learn best when they're comfortable in their environment. The issue isn't dress as much as it is promoting a climate in which all students feel comfortable, well received, and there’s mutual respect among themselves, other students, faculty and staff. This is what we want to cultivate and dress is directly related. We're teaching responsible behavior, and teaching them how to present themselves in a positive manner.


The student’s dress and grooming should not lead school officials to believe that such dress or grooming will disrupt, interfere, disturb, or detract from school activities. Our goal is to create an environment that will promote learning for every student.



The student’s dress should not conflict with dress code listed below:
