What is the Schools Dress Code?
GOAL: To establish guidelines for appropriate student attire that will be conducive to a sound educational environment and consistent with the academic goals of the school. That attire shall not be disruptive to the learning process or present a safety hazard to the wearer or other students.
OUTSIDE JACKETS- No outside jackets. Jackets determined by teachers to be worn to school by student as a "heavy" or jacket are not permitted to be worn in school during the school day. No heavy winter vests either.
LIGHT JACKETS- Due to the trouble identifying this item, room temperature, etc., discretion is left up to the individual teacher. If a student is asked to remove his or her jacket, the jacket will be placed on the back of the chair, with no locker privilege extended. Lightweight nylon jackets are acceptable.
ACCESSORIES- Accessories found to be disruptive or harmful to the educational environment shall be removed at the discretion of the teacher. Examples of accessories include: Sunglasses, Key Chains, Studded Clothing, Bracelets, or Gloves.
No gang colors or accessories of any description.
BOTTOMS (Pants, tights, shorts, skirts, etc.)
What if I want to take my child on a vacation during the school year?
We do not encourage extended vacations during the school year. If you choose to take a family vacation during the school year, a Special Request for Absence for Student form must be obtained from the school office, completed and sent to the principal prior to the absence.
