Students whose clothing fails to meet the Appropriate Dress Expectations will have the opportunity to remedy the violation. If unable, students will report to the office where a phone call home will be made. Afterwards, the students will report to Processing until a parent/legal guardian brings a change of clothes and the violation will be documented.
