Doing our best and being successful every day relies on looking and feeling our best. Clothing and dress can be a form of individual
expression; however, it should always convey a sense of personal pride and confidence that is conducive to learning. In order to ensure
that our learning environment reflects a professional atmosphere, WJCC middle schools have the following guidelines and expectations
for school dress.
If contacted by the school administration, a parent/guardian may be requested to come to the school to provide acceptable clothing. If
a parent/guardian is unavailable or cannot be reached, the student will be provided with a change of clothing. Students unable to correct
their dress may receive low-level disciplinary consequences.
• All students should be able to dress comfortably for school and engage in the educational environment without fear of or actual
unnecessary discipline, body shaming, or discrimination.
• All students will learn and practice skills of personal responsibility and decision-making through making choices regarding daily dress
that allow for individual expression while also preparing them for life beyond high school.
