Dress Code

UNIFORMS
We have a uniform dress code that should be adhered to. All students not abiding by the dress code will lose their day of FREE DRESS. This is on the last day of each month and is a reward for those students who are exhibiting responsible uniform dress on a daily basis. Students with dress code infractions will be verbally warned by the teacher or administration. If a second offense occurs, then the student will be warned in writing (as well as an email to parents), requiring parental signature. The third offense will result in the student losing free dress day privileges. Please note that the following list is not exhaustive. We reserve the right to interpret it as we see fit. If you have concerns, please contact the office during regular business hours.
