Why a dress code?
During the 2012-2013 school year, Hallman families and staff voted overwhelmingly in favor of implementing a more formal dress code policy. By requiring a standardized dress code, our desire is to build community, and maintain a focus, academic learning environment free from unnecessary distractions. This was revisited in the spring on 2018. Families, students, and staff voted to maintain our dress code. As a community, we believe it communicates the importance and professionalism of school.
What happens if we forget to wear dress code?
We want to help! We will provide a dress code shirt for the day because we don’t want anyone to feel left out or embarrassed. The shirts will be returned at the end of the day to be laundered. If this happens often, we will send a reminder about our Dress Code Policy.
