Students are expected to dress appropriately for school with specific regard for respect, neatness, safety, and modesty at all times.
Clothing and personal property displaying words and/or images portraying offensive, aggressive, sexual, or violent behavior is not acceptable in a school setting or during a school activity. Clothing or personal property that promotes drugs, tobacco, or alcohol is also prohibited. Students who violate this dress code will be asked to change their clothing in school or be sent home to change. The ultimate interpretation of the dress code will be left to the discretion of administration.
Winter Recess: Students in grades K-5 must wear seasonally appropriate outerwear during recess. Students must wear coats, boots, snow pants, etc. in order to play in the snow.
It is the expectation that parents are aware of what their students are wearing to school. Some students choose to wear shorts during the cold weather. It is not the responsibility of school personnel to determine whether this is appropriate or not; however, it is at the discretion of the administration to permit a student to go outside to play if not dressed appropriately for the weather. Students wearing shorts or not having the appropriate clothing will not be allowed outside to play if the weather conditions endanger the wellbeing of the child.
