Dress Code

With that in mind, the following guidelines apply to all students, grades K through 12, unless special arrangements have been made with, and at the sole discretion of the administrator due to extraordinary circumstances. Dress and grooming issues that may be unclear in the mind of a student or parent will be clarified by decision of the dress code committee.
