Allowing Time for an Adjustment
I know news that the dress code was going to be enforced as written caught many people by surprise this week. I'm hopeful that I do not run across other items in our handbook that are in writing but were not previously enforced. That puts me in a difficult position, and as you can imagine. I appreciate your understanding of the importance of these guidelines as our school community strives for consistency.
If your child's shoes do not meet our current dress code, I'll allow forgiveness until the end of September for families to secure dress shoes.
I hope this time helps families needing to make an unexpected dress code purchase early in the school year.
Dress Code Reminders:
For grades 1-8 students, shoes worn on non-gym days must be black dress shoes that fasten. Black canvas sneakers/skate shoes are not an option on uniform days.
Students are not to wear nail polish to school.
Skirts for girls should be no more than 2 inches above their knee.
Shoes worn on gym days should be primarily white. Logos or minimal accent color is okay.
