Should a second violation occur, the Principal will be notified and a second written notice will be sent home. This notice should be signed and returned to the Principal the following school day.

In the event of a third violation, the Principal will contact the parents or guardians to make the necessary arrangements to bring the student’s dress into compliance before the child will be allowed to return to the classroom. Subsequent violations will be dealt with by the Principal and may result in the suspension of the child.
