The School’s guidelines for student dress are not meant to be oppressive or to stifle individual expression. Instead, they are designed to ensure that students will dress appropriately for school. Just as parents’ work clothing may or may not be interchangeable with their “dress up” or recreational wardrobes, so students’ closets may contain items which are not appropriate for school. For example, students may not wear to school t-shirts that bear inappropriate or harassing slogans or that advertise drugs, cigarettes, or alcohol. When questions arise regarding appropriate dress, the faculty and administration will make the final decision as to what is proper/acceptable student attire. Other clothing questions, which arise each year as fashions change, will be answered in light of whether the clothing or accessories in question affect the School community and classroom environment.
Infractions of the dress code will be dealt with by the faculty and administration. If a student violates this policy, the student may be asked to wear appropriate clothing provided by the school over their own clothes or parents may be asked to bring appropriate clothing to school before the student will be admitted to class. Repeated violations may result in the student serving an afterschool detention or being sent home.
