Appearance/Dress Code

Boys and girls are expected to be neat and clean in appearance and wear clothing that is conducive to the academic learning environment. The weather here can be quite hot in the spring and summer and rainy in the winter. It is imperative that parents send their children to school dressed in clothing that is appropriate for these weather conditions. For Physical Education classes, all students are required to wear athletic shoes and clothing appropriate for gym.


Discipline

It is important that all children feel safe at school. It is a policy of DoDDS that discipline be maintained consistently and appropriately. We encourage students to grow in self-control, develop a sense of regard for themselves and their fellow students, and have pride in their school community. Students have the responsibility for conducting themselves in a manner that does not violate the rights of other people. Students are expected to display appropriate behavior at all times while at school.
