APPEARANCE / DRESS CODE (Updated from the 2021-2022 Student Parent Handbook)

PHILOSOPHY

It is important for all individuals in the school community to present an appropriate professional appearance. This shows respect for each other and for one’s self. Pride in one’s appearance is important in academic and professional settings.

The dress code will be enforced during school hours and while on school property and may be enforced for any school sponsored or school related events. Violation of the uniform policy will yield a verbal reminder, followed by a uniform referral. Three uniform referrals will result in a minor infraction behavior referral.

Interpretation of the dress code will be at the discretion of the principal and pastoral administrator.


HAIR

A student’s hair must be:

  • Moderate in style
  • A natural hair color
  • Hair Accessories must be solid black, dark blue, uniform plaid or the same color as the student’s hair. No bows, flowers, feathers, scarves, or anything deemed distracting by teacher or principal.  Spirit or free dress days are exceptions.

Interpretation of appropriate hairstyles for school will be solely up to the discretion of the pastoral administrator or principal.

 

JEWELRY

Appropriate jewelry, such as post earrings, watches, and necklaces are allowed. Hanging earrings are prohibited for safety reasons. Distracting jewelry will be addressed on an individual basis by the principal or teacher.

 

MAKE-UP

Make-up that is obvious and distracting (anything other than natural looking) is not allowed. Nail polish that is clear or sheer pink is the only polish allowed at school. Distracting make-up or nail polish will be addressed on an individual basis at school.
