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.
