Uniform Policy

Our dress code was developed to establish a friendly and professional atmosphere that promotes pride, respect, and safety for the students and staff.  As a family of professionals, our basic standard for students is a professional appearance in which they can take pride. School is a place of business and education is the student’s job.  We depend on our parents to support and assist us in maintaining our dress code standards.  As of August 1, 2017, the following dress code guidelines will be enforced daily at Griffith Middle School.

 

Griffith Middle School Uniform colors are dark navy blue bottoms and light blue shirts.

CONSEQUENCES FOR DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS IN MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL

The uniform policies described herein are meant to promote high expectations and Griffith’s philosophy is that students should dress with modesty and are neatly groomed. We expect parents to support and enforce these dress code guidelines with their children. As such, the following consequences will be upheld for violating the dress code policy.

 

Consequences:

Where a dress code violation may be remedied on the spot (immodest or inappropriate), the teacher will direct the student to do so. When this type of violation becomes habitual or the type of dress code violation cannot be remedied on the spot, then the student will be sent to the office. The consequences of coming to the office include (per quarter):

Offense 1: Phone call to parents and review of the dress code policy
Offense 2: Parents are called - parents must bring uniform adjustment to school

Offense 3: Parents are called – Lunch Intervention

Offense 4: Student will be assigned community service

Offense 5: Student will sign a last “Chance Contract”
Offense 6: Disciplinary action could include transfer to another school
