Reminder about school dress code

With the arrival of warmer spring weather, we would like to encourage you to take some time now to review the dress code with your children. Students and their parents have the primary responsibility for acceptable student dress and appearance. Students who violate the student dress code will be asked to modify their appearance in school by covering or removing the offending item. Parents may also be notified so that arrangements can be made to correct the situation. Any student who refuses to modify their appearance shall be subject to disciplinary action. Please pay special attention to the guidelines about apparel that is determined to be revealing or inappropriate. Clothing that exposes a student’s midriff is not allowed. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact High School Associate Principal Jackie Gordon at 355-6110 ext. 3001 or jgordon@schalmont.net. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
