Dress code: Parents, please remind your children that the dress code policy will be enforced.
If a child wears a pair of ripped jeans, any material that is torn above mid-thigh is a dress code violation. Students must wear shorts that are visible at all times between the holes in the jeans, even when they are seated. Sagging is also unacceptable, as well as tank tops and crop tops that are too short to cover a student’s midriff.
