Students who take pride in their appearance generally behave better in school and are more likely to do well in class. The standards of appearance for students shall ensure that pupils are clean, neat, and properly dressed. They shall observe modes of dress, styles of hair, and standards of personal grooming that are in conformity with the studious atmosphere necessary for a school setting and are not in any way a distraction to others. It is the responsibility of each teacher and administrator to see that the dress and grooming of the students are not so disruptive as to interfere with the teaching and learning atmosphere. Students will demonstrate body cleanliness, modesty, neatness of appearance, and good grooming. Clothes worn must be in good taste as deemed appropriate by the administration. The Student Handbook addresses the consequences for violating the dress code.
