Dress Code Passage Middle School 2011 - 2012.
From NNPS Rights and Responsibilities Handbook:A student will maintain personal attire and grooming standards that promote safety, health, and acceptable standards of social conduct. Student dress that disrupts the school environment will not be tolerated. For health and safety reasons, principals may make building level rules regarding student dress and attire.
We know one way students express their individuality is through dress. While we respect a student’s right to self-expression, our commitment is to provide a focused, quality learning environment to all students. To maintain this focus we ask students to adhere to this dress code and families to support us in this endeavor.
This presentation highlights dress codes “do’s and don’ts” that will help you when preparing for school.
