In September of 1996, the school community established a dress code and uniform policy. The latest update started in the 2017-2018 school year.
The standards for dress emphasize that our school is a place for learning, and our primary concern is the education and safety of our students. The school uniform must be worn while attending school and during school-sponsored activities.
STANDARDS FOR DRESS FOR ALL STUDENTS:
