Dress Code Violations

How we dress reflects the educational atmosphere.  As a school, we believe that we are all valuable children of God who are ready,able, and willing to learn.  Our neat, clean uniforms reflect that.  Students who come to school out of uniform will be issued a dress code violation form for parent notification and may be required to leave campus to obtain proper clothing depending on the circumstances.  Upon the third offense there will be a parent/administrator meeting to discuss the situation.
