school expects and even requires students to dress in a neat and orderly
fashion. While dress code regulations apply to regular school day
only, the school has an obligation regarding dress and personal appearance
when such causes distraction, confusion, and/or could possibly bring
harm to the individual when the student is in regular attendance or
at a school-sponsored function.
When extremes in dress and/or personal appearance cause any of the
aforementioned, the school will ask that the individual change into
more appropriate attire and/or conform to acceptable personal grooming
standards for the normal functioning of the school. The final decision
regarding school attire and proper school grooming standards is left
to the discretion of the school personnel. The following guidelines
are offered; these are subject to revision throughout the school year.

or tops with low-neck lines are not permitted. All shirts/blouses must
