Dress Code Update
All special "College Colors, spiritwear, or uniform-free" day information will come from the principal.
We have reviewed our code, investigated other equivalent schools, received feedback, and assembled a panel of students, parents, staff, and teachers to update the Dress Code. Parents and students, please review the updated Dress Code from the handbook. The updated Dress Code will be effective beginning November 2017. Any violation of the code results in a referral to the principal. Repeated violations will warrant parent contact and loss of privilege/referrals. Hopefully, the updated code puts everyone on a consistent page and on to bigger and more productive things.
We have had a lot of confusion and questions about the jean policy at Washington and want to make the policy straightforward. Policy on jeans is as follow:
- Jeans are not allowed to be worn at school with the following exceptions: individual picture days in fall and spring, spirit week and designated-free dress days. If in doubt, always clear with home room teacher or principal before jeans are worn.
- On the days jeans are acceptable, absolutely no ripped jeans are to be worn.
- If jeans are worn on a day that is not listed in exceptions above, students’ parents will be called to bring uniform pants, shorts, or skirt to school for student to change into.
- If ripped jeans are worn any school day, parents will be called to bring uniform pants, shorts, or skirts to school for student to change into.
