Unless otherwise notified through written documentation, students must follow the dress code daily

Please keep in mind that your child will mature and physically develop over the upcoming year and you may need to purchase new or larger clothes and shoes.  It is also your responsibility to make sure your child comes to school everyday safe and in clean clothes.  While elementary students do spill drinks and food on them, it is crucial that their school clothes are properly maintained and cleaned on a daily basis.

The above protect your child from illness, other health impairments, being teased, teach him/her how to take care of themselves when older, and how to be healthy.  If unhealthy patterns begin to develop, you will be contacted by the school to see if other outside assistance is needed to help your child, you, or your family in times of crisis.

When necessary, parents will be notified by a school official to discuss any unsafe or unhealthy hygiene patterns.  Please feel free to contact the school counselor or principal if you have any questions or concerns, or need assistance regarding any of the above.  We want to help you and your child to stay safe, healthy, and happy all year long!

All required dress code items can be purchased in places such as department stores, Wal-Mart, Target, Payless, or on-line.  If your child no longer fits into their school clothing, you can donate it to the school nurse to reuse the items.

Repeat offenders of the dress code will be subject to disciplinary action.
