Student Dress Code

Student Dress Code

During school hours, elementary (kindergarten-grade 6), middle school (grades 7-8), and high school (grades 9-12) students are required to wear the uniform set by the school.  

The administration reserves the right to determine whether grooming or specific items of dress distract from the learning process.  

All apparel must be appropriate to the school setting, must not draw unnecessary attention, and must not detract from the educational atmosphere of the school.  In general, all clothing must be neat and clean.  Faded, worn, stained, frayed, altered, or tattered apparel of any type is not permitted.  Pants, skirts, or skorts may not be rolled at the waistband.

2017-18 will be a transition year.  It will be the last year for the elastic waist navy blue uniform pants and shorts, as well as all old plaid jumpers.  See below for new dress code:
