Handbook

Dress Code

Dress code will consist of a solid color classic polo shirt (long or short sleeve) with modest khaki pants or capris, fingertip length shorts, or a knee-length skirt or jumper. Shoe color and style is left to the parents’ discretion. The ultimate goal with our dress code is modesty and neatness. Since your time spent in class is limited, we would ask that dress code not become an issue. Please adhere to the requirements as stated.  Specific guidelines are distributed each year in the student handbook.
