In general, school dress should ensure the welfare, safety, and enhance a positive image of our students and school. Students are expected to practice good personal hygiene and have clean clothing and footwear that meets dress code standards. Any form of dress or grooming that attracts undue attention, distracts from instruction and/or interferes with health and safety will be considered unacceptable and the student will be referred to the School Administrator.
Outerwear (i.e., coats, jackets, gloves, boots, hats) and book or gym bags must be stored in the assigned location during the school day.
Acceptable dress code:
Parents will be called if a student is out of uniform to bring that child appropriate clothes. If parents cannot bring proper uniform students will spend the day in in-school suspension. If you have any questions please call the office.
Students are only allowed to have phones / electronics at school if they are turned off and put away. Students who don’t comply during school hours will have their phone / electronic confiscated. First time the phone will be returned to the student at the end of the day, second time the parent will have to come and pick up the phone any time after that the principal will schedule a conference to discuss further actions to be taken.
Also just a reminder that students must be in uniform. They must wear dress pants and a summit shirt. It is getting cold and students may not wear their coats in school. They can either wear a shirt under their summit shirt or order a summit sweatshirt. Students will be given the chance to get in uniform, or wear clothes that we have for them if they don’t comply parents will be called to bring proper clothes. First time students will be given an automatic lunch detention, second time the will get an after-school detention, after that parents will be called in for a meeting.
If you have any questions or concerns please call the office.
