East Hamilton Middle High School

Dress Code Information

Student dress should exemplify an atmosphere of learning. Students may not wear any type of dress or look that is distracting or disrespectful to the learning environment. In terms of decisions regarding school dress, the professional judgment of teachers and administrators will prevail. If a student is not sure if an article of clothing is dress code appropriate, he/she should bring it to school and ask a teacher or administrator for approval before wearing the item in question. 

Administration makes the final decision on dress code questions/issues.

Consequences for violating the dress code:
• Student will be sent to ISS.
• Parent will be notified and clothes should be sent, if possible.
• If clothes cannot be sent, the student will remain in ISS.
