GENERAL DRESS CODE

Students who are not appropriately dressed will not be allowed to attend class. Please double-check your child's attire before they leave the house.

* All students must wear a sleeved polo-style button shirt. Any plain or printed fabric with a short button placket is acceptable as long as the shirt is modestly buttoned. Polo-style shirts do NOT button all the way from the top to the bottom of the shirt. Shirts should be loose enough to get air underneath easily. Collared button-down dress shirts do not qualify as a polo.

* Polo shirts must be at least 3 inches past the top of their jeans, pants or skirts, and should NOT be skin tight. (To see an example of a polo copy and paste the following URL into your browser:
