Dress Code/Uniform


The purpose of the student dress code is to encourage students to focus on the learning process without the distractions of inappropriate clothing or grooming. Students are required to maintain a clean, neat appearance at all times.

Personal appearances shall not detract from the educational process. Parents are asked to assist the school by monitoring their child’s school attire daily.
