Dollar Bill Rule
To determine the acceptable length for shorts, skorts, and skirts simply hold a dollar bill horizontally between the top of the knee and the bottom of the clothing. This will give you the minimum short, skort, or skirt length that is permissible for your child. Please remember that students grow considerably during the school year. Clothing that fits properly in August may be inappropriate by February.
Administration reserves the right to request a change of clothing for inappropriate dress or to recommend changes on anything deemed distracting to the learning process.
