Dress Code Reminder - Students: With warmer weather approaching, please be reminded of our dress code rules (refer to page 7 of your agenda rules and guidelines). We have relaxed our dress code rules regarding ripped jeans and leggings, however, that does not mean specific guidelines do not apply. Shorts, skirts, and dresses should be no shorter than fingertip length. Spaghetti straps and halters are not permitted. Ripped jeans are acceptable, provided the rips are BELOW fingertip length on the thigh. Rips ABOVE fingertip length require that you have leggings under the jeans. Gaping holes in jeans are not acceptable. Leggings are acceptable provided the leggings are reasonably covered by a tunic, dress, skirt, etc. This guideline is necessary since some leggings are made of extremely thin material and do not provide adequate body coverage. Non-compliance with this guideline means that the student will need to call home and have appropriate attire delivered before the student may return to class. We are willing to work together with our students regarding dress code guidelines, but you must work with us as well and use good judgement. Our teachers and staff would rather not send students to the office for dress code violations, so if you don’t challenge the dress code, we can all focus on more important things; your education. Thank you!
