STUDENT DRESS AND
While it is appreciated that choice of attire and grooming are matters of expression and are subject to many societal forces, many schools require students to appear fully clothed and groomed in an appropriate manner consonant with the establishment and continuance of a proper atmosphere for learning in every school.
Any article of clothing or manner of style or make-up determined by the teachers and principals to be disruptive of the learning environment, destructive to school property or hazardous to the health and safety of the child, students in general, and/or teachers, is not allowed.
Good grooming is stressed at all times by schools and adopted dress codes are normally placed in all student handbooks every year.
Schools realize that the majority of students do dress tastefully, with originality, grace and charm, and taking pride in individual grooming when attending school
