Proper dress and grooming is primarily the responsibility of the parent or guardian. However, the school has the responsibility to see that the cleanliness, dress, and grooming of students do not present a danger to the health or safety of themselves or their fellow students, do not prevent them from performing regular required school activities, do not cause a disruption of the orderly functioning of the school, or do not cause excessive wear or damage to school property.

     Certain rules concerning dress are needed for reasons of health, safety, and providing an atmosphere conducive to academic learning. The school staff and administration is responsible for determining the appropriateness of dress.

     Repeated failure to abide by the dress code may result in disciplinary action.

     The following are examples of inappropriate dress:

     􀂾 Beach attire

    􀂾 See-through clothing

    􀂾 Sunglasses

    􀂾 Clothing with rips or tears in inappropriate places

    􀂾 Hats, caps or visors

    􀂾 Bandanas, scarves, or similar coverings work as head gear

    􀂾 Chains

    􀂾 Bare feet

    􀂾 Shirts that expose the midriff or undergarments

    􀂾 Undergarments worn as outer garments
