GHS Dress Code Reminders

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS students and parents:
Good afternoon. From time to time, our school needs to address specific policy issues, similar to many business environments. This email is a gentle reminder to ensure all students are following our dress code policy, which is located in our student handbook, pages 21-22. As we begin a new semester, now is a good time to make improvements. To assist you in better understanding our concerns, here are some of the most common dress code violations. Hoods, beanies, bandanas, and baseball (all) hats are not permitted. Holes in jeans are not permitted. Slight rips are fine, but larger holes above the knees are a violation. Pajamas, house slippers, and blankets are not permitted. Dresses, skirts and shorts must be knee length. Boys in particular are wearing gym shorts considered too short. In general, all clothing must cover all skin from shoulders to knees when standing or bending.
*If you’ve worn clothing in the past that violates our dress code, please do not wear those items to school in the future. Beginning this semester, we will reinstate our after-school detention program for dress code and other violations. After-school detention will take place from 2:30-3:30 in the HS cafeteria. We will share this information with our students as well. For the vast majority of you, there will be no need to make changes in your day. Thank you for continuing to follow our handbook. For those students who knowingly violate the handbook, please note your behavior will be addressed accordingly. Thank you for your understanding and enjoy your weekend. Continue reading
