Upper School Dress Code 2012-2013
Saint Andrew’s students are expected to dress and groom themselves in a way that reflects neatness, moderation, and appropriateness for school. Students should arrive at the start of the school day properly dressed and groomed. The Dress Code is in effect from the time students arrive in the morning until the end of the academic day. If you are in doubt as to whether a particular garment is acceptable or not, ask before you wear it. Ignorance of the Dress Code is not an excuse for being out of dress code. We request your cooperation concerning this important matter.
