Dress Code for Students
School dress contributes to the school atmosphere. A clean, neat, appropriately dressed student suggests that he/she respects himself in a way designed to win respect from others. Students are advised to dress with good taste, and any student who arrives at school dressed inappropriately will be asked to change into appropriate attire. As you are aware, fads change; often; therefore, this policy will be updated as necessary. The following applies to all students:
1. Nothing will be worn that will be offensive to any race or sex, or which displays profanity in any form.
