DRESS CODE POLICY
In accordance with New York City Department of Education (DOE) policy, students have the right to determine their attire, except where the dress is dangerous, interferes with the teaching and learning process, or violates the DOE’s anti-discrimination policy. Schools have the right to set forth a policy that supports these goals. We expect ALL students to dress for success at Tottenville High School. THS is committed to creating an atmosphere focused on academic achievement and personal development.
Dress Code Policy Enforcement
· Students who arrive at school violating this Policy will receive a verbal reprimand and have a parent contacted. Violators will be expected to change into proper attire delivered to school by a parent/guardian or provided by the school. Any clothing provided to a student by the school is expected to be returned to school.
· Please support the THS Dress for Success and our Dress Code Policy by checking your child’s attire for compliance before their departure from home and/or before dropping them off at school.
· Administrators, deans, and counselors will check for Dress Code violations during AM entry and throughout the school day.
· Subsequent violations will lead to further disciplinary responses and a required in-school parent conference.
