Appropriate dress and good grooming are recognized as positive factors for maintaining a learning environment where students can feel safe and secure. Students are expected to show good judgment as well as respect for themselves and others. Dress and personal grooming should not present health or safety problems, cause actual disruptions of the educational process, or offend common standards of decency. All students are expected to follow the Hawthorne uniform code. Should a student arrive at school out of uniform, the following procedure will be followed:

The student will be reminded (in private) of the dress code. The student should never be corrected in front of others or scolded for not following the dress code.
The student will be made aware of what must be corrected for the next day.
In the event uniform infractions become a pattern, a parent conference will be required, and additional consequences may be implemented.
