Maintaining a neat appearance necessitates hair that is clean and nicely styled. Shaved or partially shaved heads, tails, and other "fad" styles are NOT permitted for girls or boys.
Boys’ hair should not touch the shirt collar in the back or be over the ears. A “typical” boy’s haircut should be worn at all time and throughout the grades. Neither boys' nor girls' hair should hang in their eyes nor cover the forehead.
Dyed hair is not permitted for boys or girls.
Hair bands and accessories must be simple and conservative. Hair scarves are not acceptable nor are exaggerated head bands and ornaments.
**Any student not in compliance with the dress code will receive a demerit. After one demerit, a parent will be called and the student will be sent home until the uniform meets the regulation code.**
On certain days throughout the year the students may participate in a day where they may be permitted to wear clothes other than the daily uniform. These days usually exist to support a cause. Typically the students will be required to pay $1 or bring a canned good to school. Proper dress is expected. Students may not wear shirts that contain inappropriate messages. The girls are expected to wear shirts that are not revealing or low cut. They are not permitted to wear shorts that are very short, tight or contain writing in inappropriate places. No skinny jeans or yoga pants are permitted. School gym sweat pants/shirts are permitted. Students who violate an acceptable mode of dress will be required to call their parents for a suitable change of clothing.
NUT (No Uniform Today) Pass days will be designated by the school principal. NUT Passes may not be accumulated. They must be used on the month designated on the pass.
