Dress Code Review

Each spring, we review  Dress Code rules to ensure they align with the code’s Guiding Principles, namely that rules are curricular, developmentally appropriate, equitable, manageable and current.

Through spring break, students, families, faculty and staff are invited to provide feedback and suggested changes to the Dress Code.

In March, changes for the following school year will be circulated to families allowing ample time for purchase of warm-weather clothing.

Action: If you have suggestions for changes to the dress code, please email Mr. Turner.
