Dress Code Modesty of dress and appropriateness of overall appearance will be left to the discretion of the administration. The Administrators and Director of Student Services reserve the right to address inappropriate appearance that may not fall precisely within the dress code requirements. For example bright pink, purple, blue streaking of the hair is not appropriate. Students are expected to meet the dress code at all times. The students’ dress should reflect pride in their school and respect for themselves. Enforcement of the dress code, like all other disciplinary matters, is based on cooperation between students, parents, and the school. The school, however, is the final authority on dress code and other discipline issues. If, in the opinion of the school, a student’s dress is inappropriate, a parent may be called and required to bring an acceptable outfit to the school.
All clothing should be clearly marked with the student’s name. The school cannot be responsible for articles left at the school. Unclaimed clothes will be put in “Lost & Found” in the gym. Clothes not picked up by the end of each semester will be used for other purposes at the discretion of the school.
