In order to provide a positive and safe school, students and staff at The North Star Program dress in modest attire that promotes learning. Although freedom of expression applies to students and staff, members of the The North Star Program dress in a way that does not disrupt learning or present health or safety risks. Many types of clothing that are seen in other public venues or in the media are not appropriate for a school setting. Students and parents share the responsibility of dressing for learning.
The following is the North Star Program dress code:
Students who are considered to be inappropriate in appearance will be required to change before continuing through the school day. If students persist in wearing inappropriate clothing for school, parents will be contacted, and students will be placed on progressive discipline. The dress code may be modified with administrative consent to accommodate extra-curricular activities and special occasions. The administration reserves the right to make final determination on appropriateness.
