Dress Code

Students have the right to make individual choices from a range of clothing and grooming styles. However, such choices must not present a health or safety hazard or a distraction that would interfere with the educational process. Gang clothing is not permitted. Students in violation of the dress code policy are subject to disciplinary action.
