Student Dress Code

The final school-level decisions as to the suitability of dress and grooming shall rest with the administration.
Appropriate dress and good grooming contribute to a positive atmosphere and promote student safety. Our students are
expected to dress for success each day. Mitchell Senior Staff in accordance with California Education Code, Section 48907,
and with the best interest of our students, school, school-sponsored activities, and community in mind, adopts the following
middle school dress code. We appreciate your support and adherence to these guidelines.
