  • Important Update: Updated Dress Code Policy and Information


    Dear Parents and Students,


    We're excited to announce that our updated dress code policy will be implemented starting tomorrow, 2/1/24!  This change reflects our commitment to creating a comfortable and progressive learning environment for all our students.


    Key Update: We're pleased to inform you that students are permitted to wear yoga pants without the need to cover them with a skirt, shorts, or a shirt extending to the knees. This change is part of our ongoing efforts to modernize our dress code and ensure student comfort.


    Need Clarification? We understand that adapting to new guidelines can sometimes be challenging. If you or your child have any questions or concerns about the new dress code, our security team is here to help. They will provide guidance and direct you to the office for further assistance.


    We recommend that students bring a change of clothes to school, especially if they are uncertain about their attire's compliance with the new policy. This step will help ensure a smooth transition to the updated dress code standards.


    We appreciate your cooperation in maintaining a respectful and comfortable environment for our students. Let’s all work together to make our school a great place for learning and growth.

    Thank you for your support and understanding.
