Student Dress Code

Pressly Student Dress Code
 

At Pressly, it is of primary importance to foster an atmosphere that is most conducive to learning.  Students need to come to school in safe, non-distracting attire.  The student dress code outlines acceptable standards for student dress during the school day and during other school-sponsored activities including field trips. Students should wear attire and groom themselves in a manner that supports a healthy and safe learning environment.   


Students should not wear attire that is disruptive to the school environment, that promotes illegal or harmful activities, or that could endanger the health and safety of the student or other students.  Students are expected to attend school in clothing that is appropriate for a productive educational environment.  Clothing accessories that bring excessive attention to an individual will be prohibited.
