Student Dress Code

The following dress code includes the modifications initiated by representatives of the students, faculty, parents and administration.  All teachers will assist in enforcing the Dress Code as adopted by the Board of Education.  The administration reserves the right to make the final decision on the appropriateness of student dress and grooming.
