Addresses ensure that you receive timely mailings and telephone numbers are essential for school alert telephone messages as well as strong home-school communication.

    • All undergarments must be covered at all times and should never be visible.

Shirts are to be able to be tucked in and be able to stay tucked in during normal school movement. Shirts are to completely cover the student shoulder to shoulder.
    • Slogans/logos on clothing, jewelry, etc. are to be appropriate for school.
    • All clothing should fit appropriately to adhere to appropriate modesty for a school setting.
    • Marion County Public Schools Dress code requires all shorts, dresses, and skirts to fall mid-thigh.
    • Gentleman’s shirts that are longer than mid-thigh must be tucked into pants/shorts with a belt.
    • Wearing a jacket or shirt will not excuse a student from complying with the dress code.

    • No bandanas displayed in any fashion
