Dress Code

MCHS Dress Code 

MCHS dress code will be in compliance with the MMS Board Policy #6.310: Administration and members of the Student  Government met and modified the dress code  for the 2017 - 2018 school year.

The following expectations for student  dress have been established to promote a safe and optimum learning  environment. 

Apparel items or appearances, which tend to draw attention to an individual rather than the learning  environment or its surroundings, must be avoided. In matters of opinion, the judgment  of the principal or principal’s designee shall prevail. 

The school administration  reserves the right to determine whether  the students attire is within the limits of decency, modesty, and safety.  Examples of clothing considered outside the limits of decency, modesty, and safety are  leggings, tight fitting clothes, and low-cut tops.

The principal may allow exceptions in special circumstances or occasions such  as holidays or special performances and may further prescribe dress in certain  classes such  as physical education, vocational classes, and science labs. 

MCHS Dress Code Violations do not start over at the end of the semester.
