would endanger student’s safety or distract from the learning environment are not acceptable.

All school staff will be involved in the dress code enforcement. Students who may be considered in violation of the dress code will be referred to the principal or his/her designee for final decisions. A student found to be in violation of the dress code will not be permitted to return to class until the dress code issue is corrected. Students refusing to comply with the dress code policy may have increasing levels of accountability under the Discipline Guidelines. Students may be required to wear some school provided clothing to complete a school day.
The intent of this policy is not to prevent any student who is not in uniform from attending school. This is a progressive disciplinary plan for students who are considered non-compliant with the Dress Cade Policy and who have not been granted an exemption.
Parent(s} or guardian(s} may request an exemption from the School Uniform Policy by submitting a “Uniform Exemption Request Form” to the school principal. Exemptions will only be granted for religious reasons, medical reasons, financial reasons or other justifiable reasons.
- 1st Offense -Office Referral/Phone call to parent or guardian
- 2nd Offense -Principal or designee, parents, and student conference
- 3rd Offense/Subsequent & Chronic Offense -The student will be assigned a period of suspension
