  • Dress Code Information

    Posted by BETHANY AOKI on 9/15/2019 1:00:00 PM

     

     

    Students are expected to dress in a manner which is neat, tidy and appropriate. Rather than having a school uniform, Frontier has the following expectation: Student dress and appearance must follow health and safety standards and not cause disruption to the learning environment. The school administration is the final judge to determine clothing appropriateness should an item be questioned. If it is determined that a student is not dressed appropriately for school, they will be given the opportunity to cover the clothing (i.e., wear a sweatshirt over an inappropriate top), to change their clothing, or to have a parent bring a change of clothing to school, In addition to the above guidelines, the following specific limitations are to be observed.  This is not a complete list, as every year fads and trends change and develop that we cannot always anticipate, administration will work with students to determine if the clothes are appropriate or not.  
     
    1. Flannel/pajama/lounge pants are not acceptable clothing for school. Also, no blankets are allowed at school. No pajamas.
    2. Any clothing, grooming, or behavior that symbolizes, represents, or can be construed as exhibiting gang-related activity or hatred toward another person or group is not permitted. This includes any item containing the Confederate flag and/or swastika, display of gang colors, or other clothing that implies gang membership or affiliation.
    3. Bandanas are not allowed at school.
    4. “Sagging” is not allowed (belt line needs to be at, or above, the hip level), multiple requests for the same student to pull up his/her pants will result in disciplinary action and parent contact.
    5. All shirts must have sleeves and cover the entire midriff area. No bare shoulders are allowed, cold shoulder shirts are allowed. Brief garments such as halter-tops, bare midriffs, barebacks, tube tops, tank tops, spaghetti straps, and plunging necklines are not appropriate. Undergarments must be covered at all times.
    6. Necklines must not be lower than three inches width from the bottom of the neck.
    7. Shorts, skirts, must be no shorter than mid-thigh or fingertip length, and undergarments must be covered at all times.
    8. All students must wear footwear designed for public use at all times. Slippers may not be worn at school.
    9. Sunglasses or gloves may not be worn inside the school building.
    10. Clothing may not advertise or promote alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or weapons.
    11. No drawing on yourself or others, or excessive drawing on clothing.

  • FALCON FAMILIES

     

    We are already one month into the school year! Thank you for your patience as we created new classes and try to balance out our classes. We have one last schedule change to make and that is adding in a PE class 6th period to our Art and Music elective rotation. We will be moving students from that 6th period elective rotation,Art and Music, into PE, so students will have PE, Art, and Music for the year. As you can see I have changed the newsletter format, which I hope makes it a lot easier for you to read.

    VERBAL THREAT OF HARM TO SELF OR OTHERS: Please talk to your child(ren) about verbalizing harm to other students or themselves as we take all threats seriously. If a student threatens harm to themselves they will immediately see a counselor/social work and parents/guardians will be notied to talk about next steps. If a student threatens harm to others we will investigate the situation to determine the validity of the harm, consequences may be given to the student who threatens harm.
