A good learning environment must be created before the learning process can take place. This learning atmosphere is only truly accomplished through development of self-discipline. Real self-discipline is the key to a smooth and productive school life. If self-discipline is practiced, imposed discipline rarely needs to be used.
Dress and grooming of students does affect the learning atmosphere. Therefore, dress and grooming must be appropriate, neat and clean; and, non-distractive to teachers, students or to the ongoing learning process.
For specific activities or classes where certain grooming or clothing may be unhealthy or hazardous, requirements may be made to maintain safety and health standards.
Shirts, buttons, patches, etc. shall not be of a questionable nature.
The above standards are also applicable for those who represent the school in any way or in any school-related activity. (This includes spectators, etc.)
Designated dress may be required for students participating in special activities. The sponsor of the activity shall determine appropriate dress requirement, with prior approval of the administration.
