To convey our image of a Christian school, being committed to excellence and providing a positive, Christ-centered learning environment, the following dress guide has been established. This guide applies to physical education classes and school-sponsored extra-curricular activities, on and off-site, as well as the classroom.
- Shorts may be worn during the entire school year. Shorts MUST be long enough to reach the tip of the child’s fingertips when standing with hands to the side. Skirts MUST be no more than 4 inches above the knee.
- Because we have chapel on Wednesdays, as a sign of respect we encourage students to dress up.
- Clothing made from spandex or like material may not be worn as an outer garment.
- Strapless/backless dresses or blouses, halter tops, tube tops, and bare midriffs are not allowed.
- Tank tops, fishnet, and mesh shirts are not allowed, unless part of an approved uniform.
- Imprinted items that counteract the Christian principles of the school are not considered proper dress, and therefore are not allowed.
- Hats and sunglasses may not be worn in the building.
- No “spaghetti-strap” shoulders on shirts or dresses.
- Safe footwear should be worn at all times so students are not prone to tripping or falling.
- Hair must be neatly groomed, and cut or combed away from the child’s eyes. Any unusual hairstyles (Mohawk etc.) will not be tolerated. Decisions on inappropriate hairstyles will be left at the discretion of the principal.
If any of the above dress code requirements are broken, consequences are…
- 1st Offense: Student will receive a warning and a dress code slip, which will need to be signed by a parent and returned to the school office.
- 2nd Offense: Student will receive a detention, and a dress code slip, which will need to be signed by parent and returned to the school office.
- 3rd Offense: Student will receive an in-school suspension, and a dress code slip, which will need to be signed by a parent and returned to the school office.
- 4th Offense: Student will receive a dress code slip, and parents will need to appear before the Board of Education regarding possible expulsion. The Board of Education decision is final.
