Scripture speaks to the relevance of dress in a sincere Christian life, one that is pleasing and glorifying to the name of Jesus Christ (I Timothy 2:9 and II Thessalonians 1:12). Personal appearance should contribute to a holy testimony for Christ. Therefore, guidelines for dress and appearance are made to assist with that testimony and to minimize certain influences which distract from the purpose of the school.
Snow boots may be worn into the building, student must change once they enter their classroom
At no time may students wear tattoos, hats, scarves or any clothing which promote alcohol/drug use, gang activity, or display messages, which are anti-education or sexually suggestive. Slogan shirts, jogging attire, numbered jerseys, t-shirts, slacks, jeans, or sweatpants with messages are not allowed. Exceptions for special occasions will be communicated to parents. SCA will notify parents when students are permitted to dress out of uniform for field trips or other special occasions.
“DRESS-DOWN” FRIDAYS STARTING OCTOBER 5th
On Fridays STARTING IN OCTOBER, students will earn “Dress Down” for a fee of $1.00. If a student violates school uniform Monday – Thursday, they will not earn the privilege to dress down on that Friday. Students are to dress in appropriate apparel that does not conflict with the school dress codes listed above. If students choose not to participate in “Dress Down”, they must be in their regular school uniform. If a student participates but does not pay the $1.00 fee and/or they violate the school dress code – the student will not be permitted to participate in “Dress Down” day the following week. Parents will be notified if students are not permitted to “Dress Down”.
(No leggings, jeggings or form fitting or tight pants of any kind can be worn at SCA)
“Dress Down” Days are a privilege. Therefore, if a student receives one (1) or more infractions during the week, he or she WILL NOT be permitted to participate in this school-wide event at the end of that week.
