Dress Code in English




A student’s appearance has much to do with personal pride, conduct and the way students respond to each other.  Student success and a positive learning atmosphere are also affected by appearance.  Because of this, East Montana Middle School is requiring “Dress for Success” for students in grades 6 – 8 as follows:  

All Students: 
1) Polos in solid color of black, gray, white or red shall be worn.  Under shirts must be solid in black, gray, red or white.

If the Administrator determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the dress code, the students shall be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school if the occurrence is the first or second offense during the school year. 
If not corrected, or if the violation is a third offense within the school year, the student will be subject to  appropriate disciplinarye consequences as determined by the Administrator, for the remainder of the day or until the problem is corrected.  Repeated dress code violations may result in more serious disciplinary action.  Appropriate discipline procedures shall be followed in all cases [(FNCA (LOCAL)].
