Tag Day Expectations
Tag days are days that students may bring in $1 to be out of uniform. These days are a privilege, and are meant to be enjoyed. In order to continue receiving this privilege, students must abide by certain guidelines. Most importantly, students must dress appropriately for any tag day. The administration reserves the right to call parents to bring appropriate clothing if students are not covered properly, dressed in anything too short, too low or not enough. Students may not wear shirts that imply inappropriate sexual comments. Boys must at all times wear pants to the waist. Exposed undergarments are not acceptable.

Violation of Uniform Policy
The administration will not admit students to school in violation of the uniform policy. All clothing must be the correct size and must be purchased from the approved list of styles. Please do not allow your child to leave home or come into school out of uniform. You will be called to bring the correct clothing or to pick your child up for noncompliance of school policy.
