Dress code:

The SMR dress code provides a standard for our students conducive to learning and respectful behavior. The SMR dress code balances the need for self-expression and promotes a positive attitude. The school uniform is a point of pride and must always be worn in an appropriate manner. In addition, students are required to follow the appropriate grooming guidelines and tag day guidelines or the student will receive appropriate disciplinary action. Students must maintain possession of their school issued student ID at all times.

 

Inclement/Cold weather attire:

Upperclassman (11th and 12th grade students) must wear the SMR uniform blazer at all times during the winter uniform timeframe. The following items may not be worn and may be stored for later pick up: sweatshirts/hoodies, head coverings, non-uniform sweaters, non-compliant clothing.

 

Tag day attire:

On non-uniform tag days students should use good judgment and wear clothes that are modest and in good taste. If on a tag day a student is not dressed appropriately and immediate adjustments cannot be made prior to the student going to class, the parent/guardian will be called and the student will be sent home to change attire. The time missed due to noncompliance will be unexcused and will result in loss of class credit.
