School Dress Code

All students will follow the school dress code unless otherwise specified by the Administration. Teachers are to check their students’ clothing each morning. The teacher that identifies the dress code violation will address accordingly with the student who is not dressed appropriately. The first time a student is not within the dress code guidelines, the parents will be notified explaining the nature of the violations. In the event a student comes to school without proper attire, but with a note of explanation from a parent, the student will be sent to the office with the note before attending classes. Final authority for judgment calls rests with Administration.

Student clothing must meet the following standards: it must be conservative, neat, clean, pressed, and modest. Clothes that are severely faded, dirty, torn, immodest, or in any other way present a disheveled appearance are not permitted. Shirts must be tucked in. Shoes must be clean. For Elementary students, when weather calls for outer garments, each garment must be labeled with the student’s name.

Dress Code for After School Events

It is important that school sponsored and sanctioned events that take place after normal school hours reflect the mission of the school. Dress code compliance at these events helps reflect our desire to do all things in a manner that will please and honor the Lord. Students are to exercise good judgment in what they wear and how they wear it. In case of any gross violations of dress code at an after school event (such as immodest, tight, overly loose or revealing clothing, or inappropriate logos or printing) the student will be asked to leave the event.
