Dress Code Policies: Non-Exhaustive
With countless styles, it is not feasible to fully outline the non-permissible clothing. As such, non-permissible items are not limited to those provided as examples above. When in doubt, please choose a compliant item or ask if the item meets the dress code standards prior to your child wearing the article to school.
The school reserves the right to determine whether any item is in compliance with dress code.
