Dress Code Reminder
Please read the following message reiterating our school dress code policy:
Harmony Public Schools’ dress code policy was established to create a safe and orderly environment, teach grooming and promote proper hygiene, instill discipline, and eliminate competition and distraction. As we kick off the spring semester, we believe it is important to review these policies, which can be found on pages 16-18 in the Student Handbook. Please make sure your child arrives to school in appropriate dress every morning. Students will not be allowed to attend class until they are appropriately dressed and any missed class time will be counted as an unexcused absence. Violations of these policies will result in incremental disciplinary action.
Some of the most common violations we are experiencing on our campus include students trying to wear non-permitted outerwear (hoodies, sweatshirts, jackets, etc), inappropriate pants (joggers, jeans, yoga/spandex, holes), and footwear (sandals).
The only acceptable items that may be worn over the school shirt in includes v-neck cardigans or v-neck vests in solid colors of navy, red, or black, or the Harmony-logo fleece that was sold in previous years. All other items must be taken off before entering the building and stored in the students’ locker. Classrooms are kept at comfortable temperatures, but if students are still cold with a cardigan, they may wear solid colored long sleeve shirts under their school uniform, or purchase some of the new long-sleeved uniform shirts from the front office.
Pants must be blue, black, or khacki pants/slacks and fitted with a leather belt. Inappropriate pants include jeans, cargo style, yoga, joggers, spandex. All pants must fit properly, be worn at the waist, must be free of holes/tears, and may not be rolled up at the legs.
All footwear must have closed toes/heels. Sandals or slides are not permitted.
