***If students come to school out of dress code, the student will be sent to the office.   If, in the opinion of the Administrator, the violation is serious, the student must wait in the office until parents bring proper clothing.  If, in the opinion of the Administrator, the violation is not serious, the student may return to class.  In either case, a note will go home to the parents.  After two (2) dress code violations during the year, the student must serve detention (Grades 1-8) or other forms of discipline as the dress code is in effect to eliminate unnecessary distractions to the educational environment.

It is the teacher’s responsibility to address any and all dress code violations within their classroom which includes notifying the Administrator of students who do not comply with the dress code. FINAL AUTHORITY WITH RESPECT TO MORE THAN TWO (2) VIOLATIONS WILL REST WITH THE ADMINISTRATOR.
