The school reserves the right to regulate against upcoming fads or fashions that have a negative influence or may disrupt the learning environment. Interpretation and judgment in matters pertaining to dress and personal appearance are necessary. Students will be given the opportunity to change into loaners until the appropriate clothing from home is provided. In this area the Principal and/or Assistant Principals are the final and sole judge of what is or is not acceptable for an individual student.
