Student Handbook


It is recognized that appropriate student dress and grooming are the responsibility of the parent and the student.  Students are expected to be appropriately dressed and practice good hygiene at all times. Any form of dress or appearance which is offensive, disruptive in appearance, and/or detrimental to the purpose and climate of the school will not be permitted. 

Clothing and accessories, including but not limited to backpacks, jewelry, and electronic device covers or decals may not display statements that are age-inappropriate, racial or ethnic slurs, historical symbols of oppression (i.e. confederate flag), vulgar, obscene, or suggestive images, nor may they promote items or products that students may not legally purchase or possess (i.e. alcohol, tobacco, vapes or illegal drugs.)

We ask for parents’ continued support in helping children choose clothing that will not detract from the learning environment or devalue the principle of respect. The principal will determine when attire or accessories are inappropriate for school. Students who fail to adhere to dress code policy will be asked to change their attire or remove an accessory, remain in the office, or be sent home until acceptable attire is delivered to them or parent contact is made. Multiple infractions and/or failure to comply may lead to discipline.

Likewise, any materials brought into school (pictures, toys, etc.) which are disruptive or detrimental to the purpose or conduct of the school will be confiscated and may be picked up from the school office by a parent or guardian. This includes the popular items of the moment which are often disruptive to the school environment.
