Also, please remember that the dress code applies for the dance (See below). Thank you for you attention to this.  We hope all the students have a  fun time at the dance.  


The dress code has been established to maintain a safe, secure environment and avoid classroom distractions, while allowing for as much freedom of choice for the student as possible. Students should be aware that the dress code also applies in PE.

  3. Skirts and dresses must extend to at least the mid thigh in normal sitting and standing positions.  Spandex worn under skirts or shorts must have a minimum of 5 inch inseam.

  4. Shorts must have an inseam length of at least 5 inches.
