This includes the wearing of and/or possession of any such garments.

Attire or accessories that advertise, display or promote any drug, alcohol, tobacco, sexual activity, violence, obscenities, disrespect or bigotry are not allowed.

Use of Electronic Devices
Due to increased interruptions and reported thefts, Cell Phones will be the ONLY device students are allowed to have on campus. Cell phones must be turned off and kept out of sight (except before school, during lunch time, and after school). Cell Phones may not be seen or used during class time and passing periods. 'Use' is interpreted as using (or visibly showing) cell phones, not just the sending or receiving of calls. IPods/headphones and electronic/digital devices are unnecessary to our educational process, deemed potentially disruptive, and will not be allowed on campus.
