Students: Expect Enforcement to Be...
1.  Discreet
Whenever possible, violations will be addressed confidentially.
2.  Specific
You'll simply be told exactly what isn't in compliance.
3.  Without Physical Contact
Your personal space will be respected.
4.  Specific Staff for Unique Questions
Specially trained staff will address unique situations or questions of interpretation.
Staff Members Are:
  • Supported by a team of school leaders who assist when needed
  • Annually trained on dress code & enforcement plan
  • Regularly reviewing practices to support positive student interactions
Parents Can Help:
Talk to your kids about the dress code & ensure it is followed.

Extreme dress code violations and/or those posing an immediate risk to health or safety:
  • Parents have option to bring compliant clothes
  • School staff can offer clean, school-issued clothes in dress code
  • A student may need to wait in office until dress code violation is resolved.
