Consequences for Dress Code Violations

The consequences are as follows when EHS staff have attempted all forms of behavior remediation and the issue of dress code has become a major behavioral issue:

  • Parent communication of dress code violations

  • The student will be sent to the office and will be required to change into appropriate clothing. If the student does not have appropriate clothing to change into a change of clothing will be provided by office staff. The student can also have a parent bring a change of clothes.

  • The student will change and the clothing will be confiscated until a parent can pick it up.
