School Dress Code

 

                                        DRESS CODE SCHOOL POLICY

 

There is a positive relationship between good dress habits, good work habits and proper school behavior. Students are expected to dress appropriately for school. They must dress in a manner that is neither distracting to teachers and other students nor detrimental to the educational process of the school. Since styles of dress and grooming are constantly changing, the regulation of dress will be based on common sense and good judgment and in a manner that demonstrates respect for self as well as for others. If a student's appearance is judged to be inappropriate or unsafe by the school administration, a parent/administrator conference will be arranged or the parent contacted. 

 

The Lordship School Dress Code was voted on and approved by the Stratford Board of Education on June 25th, 2012.
