A Message from Mr. McKenzie - Dress Code Reminder 1
Students – as Spring is in the air and the temperature rises our days may become warmer and we may feel a little more relaxed.  However, students please do not relax on the Dress Code Policy.    As a reminder, students are expected to dress in a manner which respects learning environment.  Each day SMHS will offer examples what is not appropriate dress taken from the Student Handbook, something we like to call the Daily Dress Code Reminder.  Today the focus is shorts and skirts:

• Revealing attire is not allowed.    Specifically, shorts or skirts that are too short - the length of skirts and shorts must be longer than the fingertips when arms are extended to the sides of the body. 

Students that violate this policy will receive a referral and asked to change their clothing.
