We ask each parent, teacher, and student’s cooperation in maintaining the dress code standards. It is the responsibility of each parent to check their child daily to see to it the dress code is maintained. The dress code serves two purposes: a. sets a businesslike atmosphere and b. promotes safety. Your kind cooperation is appreciated.
