Dress Code Policy
General Uniform Information
All student clothing must be neat, clean, in good repair, modest in fit and length, and appropriate to a Chris-tian educational environment. Dress, hairstyle, or makeup should not call undue attention to the individual or be distracting. Furthermore, proper hygiene practices are encouraged. This policy applies during any school day from the time of arrival on campus until dismissal. There will sometimes be special dress considerations made for certain field trips. These considerations will be communicated on the permission slip.
SCS has adopted a campus-wide uniform policy. The purpose is to 1) eliminate distractions from the learning environment, 2) have our dress reflect pride in our school, 3) address modesty issues, 4) have a fair, consistent, and objective dress code, and 5) have a campus-wide plan that works toward the goal of training our students in appropriate dress.
Appropriateness of dress is first of all the responsibility of the home. We need and expect parental support to effectively maintain standards of dress. Parents are encouraged to teach their children to submit to the guidelines within the dress code.
