I. Students are expected to adhere to uniform dress policies as developed by the School
and approved by the Board of Education.

II. A student may request an exemption from a school’s prescribed uniform dress plan by

must accompany the request.

A. Medical exemptions require a doctor’s note that states, in specific terms, the
clothing that cannot be worn.

B. Religious exemptions require a copy of applicable doctrine and a letter from an
official of the religion with which the student is affiliated.

III. If a student refuses to adhere to an established uniform dress policy and does not
claim any of the exemptions stated above, the school will take the following steps as
appropriate.

The school will notify the student and the parents of the specific violation and request a change
of clothing from the parent. A letter outlining appropriate uniform dress will be mailed at this
time. The student will be given two days to comply. The school will determine if there is a valid
need for financial assistance that prevents compliance with the uniform dress policy. The school
will provide appropriate resources as needed.

The parent will be contacted with a request for a change of clothing for the student. The school
will provide a temporary change of clothing that complies with stated policies if needed. A
disciplinary conference will be conducted for non-compliance with the policy.
