The appearance and dress of students should positively reflect respect for themselves, for others, for their Savior, and for their school. Student dress and appearance are to promote a learning atmosphere that is free from distraction while reflecting the importance of the daily task of education. Good grooming and attire enhance students’ pride in themselves and their school and provide a positive witness to our community.
Should a student’s dress or grooming not meet established school standards, the parents will receive a FACTS notification and a School Dress Code Notice to be signed and return on the next school day. If a child’s clothing is a distraction in the learning environment, the child may be given alternate clothing to wear for the day, or parents may be contacted to bring clothing that complies with our dress code. Three School Dress Code Notices in a quarter will result in a student detention.
