DRESS CODE POLICY
 
UNIFORMS
Students are required to be in full uniform on the first day of school and each day thereafter. Exceptions are made on spirit days and early dismissal days when spirit shirts may be worn. In addition, there may be a few “dress up” days during the school year when students may wear approved clothing.
 
All articles of uniform clothing, except for pants and shorts, must be purchased from Worldwide Supply. Any exceptions should be approved by the principal.
 
Uniform brand pants or shorts may be purchased at the following stores: Academy, Dillard’s, or Target. No other brand or style will be allowed. Any concerns or questions about uniforms should be discussed with the principal or assistant principal.
 
Newcomers and late arrivals will have additional time to purchase and receive their uniforms.
 
Jackets or winter coats that are worn to school must be removed after entering the school building. Only St. Louis sweatshirts, fleece jackets and the navy cardigan sweaters sold by Worldwide Supply may be worn during class. Hoodies are not allowed.
 
Shirts need to be tucked in. Students may wear a clean (no logos) white short sleeved undershirt under their uniform shirt as long as it is tucked in.

The student’s name should be clearly marked inside each article of uniform clothing. It is impossible to identify ownership unless uniforms are labeled.
All students are expected to be in full uniform each day. Students in grades 7-8 will be on a demerit system. For each offense, a student will receive 1 demerit. After 3 demerits, the student will receive a detention. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action.
