PROGRESSIVE DISCIPLINE (UNIFORMS)

Protocols will vary based on the grade; however, teachers and administrators will closely monitor uniform compliance. In grades 6-12, male administrators will work with male students, and female administrators will work with female students to follow the progressive discipline process below:

1st Incident: The student will receive a warning and may be required to change immediately. One (1) demerit will be assigned (6-12)

2nd Incident: The student will be required to change immediately and may not return to class until he/she is in proper dress code. The student will be assigned five (5) demerits (6-12). Parents will be alerted by email and required to sign a form that outlines the progressive discipline steps.

3rd Incident: The student will be sent home immediately and assigned ten (10) demerits (6-12). Any absence(s) from class related to a dress code incident will not be excused.

4th Incident: (6-12 grade only): The student will be required to wear the established School Uniform as stated in the Student Handbook for PRIMARY School (K3-5) for the remainder of the year.

The school cannot possibly address every issue or article of clothing. The school will at times render a decision you may not agree with. The Administration will address and make final decisions on any such differences in opinion. Although we may not agree on every issue, we can agree to support decisions made by the Administration. If in doubt, please call the school office.

These established polices are directed at providing guidelines to foster a learning environment for the students. They are never directed at any one culture, person or ethnic group.

I have thoroughly read and understand the uniform guidelines and am ready to order.
