There are clear consequences for chronic and significant non-compliance with present policy concerning proper uniform, cosmetic use and hair presentation. Specifically, a note will be sent home by the principal to parents of non-compliers, indicating the nature of the infraction(s) and the expected date for remediation. If this responsibility is not met, or there are repeated incidents of non-compliance, the student will be required to stay home from school until the appropriate corrective action is taken.
