Dress Code

 

The goal of the Fairmont Expectations Dress Code is to promote a positive, safe school atmosphere that is conducive to student learning and success.  Wearing  or displaying accessories, symbols, paraphernalia, lettering, slogans, or other adornment which advertises, or encourages the use and/or consumption of drugs, alcohol or tobacco, or which promotes disruptive, dangerous, or illegal behavior, profanity, vulgarity, violence or gangs is not allowed on school grounds. 

 

The staff has the responsibility to enforce the dress code and the right to interpret the dress code to ensure and protect a school environment that supports learning and is safe for everyone.  Parent/guardian support is vital to maintaining appropriate dress standards.
