Dress Code

The purpose of the school dress code is to require dress that complies with sound health and safety practices and that is not disruptive to the educational process. Students who are not dressed according to the dress code will either wait at the office until the parent can bring a change of clothing or the student will be provided with a substitute garment. Teachers, parents, and the administration developed the dress code that is conducive to student learning.
Students shall wear appropriate clothing and groom themselves in a manner that reflects a respect for the learning environment and does not distract from the educational setting. Therefore, the following expectations apply:
1. All shirts must meet the following guidelines.
a. Shirts must be a long or short sleeved polo.
b. Shirts must be solid color, with or without the AEA logo.
c. Shirts must be either Navy Blue, Black, Gray, White, or Burgandy/Maroon.
d. Off the shoulder, see through, and spaghetti strap shirts are not permitted.
e. Tops must be long enough so that skin does not show when hands are raised.
2. All bottoms (pants, shorts, skirts and dresses) must be uniform style and meet the following guidelines.
a. All shorts, skirts, and dresses worn to school by students in all grades must be mid-thigh or longer.

Students are taught the scholar behaviors in their classrooms and during grade level assemblies during the first week of school. Teachers and the administrators discuss and model specific examples of each behavior. Parents are encouraged to review scholar behaviors with students also.
