Enforcement:

Dress code is one of the standards that sets PCCS apart from other public schools.  Students are expected to be responsible enough to observe dress code.  Parents are expected to encourage their students to follow dress code.  Staff should not be expected to take up instructional time to address violations.

Failure to follow this policy will result in disciplinary action.
