The students at Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS are expected to exercise good judgment and are required to dress in a responsible manner. All clothing must be worn in the way it was designed to be worn. Any exception to dress code policies must be approved by the school administration. Violation of dress/grooming codes will result in the following:
1st Offense – Office Referral, placed in the Intervention Center (IC) for the remainder of the day and Parent Contact.
2nd & Subsequent Offense – Office Referral, 1 day of the Alternative Bell Schedule (ABS) and Parent Contact. Note – ABS requires students to attend school from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The student is responsible for their own transportation.
Repeated violations will result in referral to the IAC. Dress code violations will be judged at the time they are first seen, not after a student has adjusted his/her clothes. The Fundamental Dress Code exceeds that of other district schools. Dress or grooming of students shall not be disruptive of the educational environment. Fundamental Dress Code requirements include:
The administration shall be the final judge as to the neatness and cleanliness of wearing apparel and whether or not such apparel is appropriate, disruptive, distracting or in violation of health and safety rules.
