Students should dress in a manner that does not distract from the educational process. Any type of attire which does not comply with the appearance code, which brings undue attention to the wearer or causes disruption, is not acceptable. It is the responsibility of each parent to insure that his or her child observes the code.
Any student inappropriately dressed may be sent home to change. Time missed from classes will be unexcused and therefore no work will be allowed to be made up. Chronic disregard for the dress code will lead to further disciplinary action. Final say with any dress code issue rest with the Administration.
