GENERAL DRESS CODE RULES
A safe and disciplined learning environment is the first requirement of a good school. Young people who are safe and secure, who learn basic moral and Biblical values, and the essentials of good citizenship, are better students. In response to growing levels of violence in our schools, many parents, teachers, and school officials have come to see school uniforms as one positive and creative way to reduce discipline problems and increase school safety.
The potential benefits of school uniforms include:
- decreasing violence and theft -- even life-threatening situations -- among students over designer clothing or expensive sneakers;
- instilling students with discipline;
- helping parents and students resist peer pressure;
- helping students concentrate on their school work;
- helping school officials recognize intruders who come to the school.
Cleanliness is a must – it will be taught and expected.
All hairstyles are to be off the eyes, clean and neatly trimmed. Hairstyles should suit the individual, should not be a fad style or identify with a rebellious group. A lady’s hair is her glory and therefore should be well kept and conservatively styled.
No large necklaces, earrings, or pins are to be worn. One set of small stud type earrings, a simple chain, and one ring per hand may be worn.
Boys are prohibited from wearing any earrings.
Make up should be limited and not obvious. Nail polish may not be worn.
Dressy shoes must be worn with the uniform.
All items of school and gym uniform must be clearly marked with the student’s name.
Guests at the school or school-sponsored activities are required to wear clothing and hairstyles consistent with the school standards.
Boys and girls must wear dress up attire to school every Wednesday for chapels, and on other occasions if required by the school.
Students in the wrong attire will not be allowed to participate.
