Harpool Middle School Dress Code
The Harpool dress code is established to teach hygiene, instill self-discipline, prevent disruptions, promote safety, and provide an environment for learning. The responsibility for adhering to the dress code begins with the student and parents of the student. Enforcement of the code is the responsibility of the classroom teachers and administrators. The following guidelines are to assist students and parents in selecting appropriate attire (as determined by campus administration):
1. All students are to present a clean, well-groomed appearance at school and school activities.
2. Discipline Tickets will be taken for initial dress code infractions. Multiple infractions will result in further disciplinary measures.
3. The following items have been determined to be unacceptable for wear at school:
· jeggings, tights, leggings or yoga pants
· HOLES IN JEANS or PANTS (no under patches, no leggings under)
