Every child must have received all of the vaccines, be in-process of receiving needed doses or show proof that they have a letter from the Arkansas Department of Health approving serology as proof of immunity, or applied for an exemption for those vaccines he/she has not received in order to continue attendance in a public or private school. School may temporarily admit a child provided that the child becomes appropriately immunized, is in-process of receiving the needed doses of vaccine, or shows proof that they have applied for an exemption for those vaccines he/she has not received within thirty (30) calendar days after the child’s original admission or by October 1st for Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines at age 11 and 16 years, respectively. "In process" means the student has received at least one dose of the required immunizations and is waiting the minimum time interval to receive the additional doses. When a student is admitted who is in the process of completing the required minimum immunizations, the facility shall require each student to complete the required doses on schedule. A written statement from a public health nurse or private physician stating that the student is in process and containing a date when he/she must return for the next immunization shall be in the student's file. If a student does not produce documentation of additional immunizations per the schedule or show proof that they have applied for an exemption from the immunization requirements, they must be excluded from school until documentation is provided.

STUDENT DRESS CODE 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR

GRADES 7-12

 

RULE # 18:  Student Dress and Grooming

 

A student will not practice a mode of dress, style of hair, or standard of personal grooming extreme to the point of creating a disturbance of the educational atmosphere.  Students who refuse to abide by reasonable guidelines and conform to the dress code will be subject to disciplinary action at the discretion of the administrator.  Extreme dress code violations will be sent home.  (Miniskirts fall in that category.)

 

The matter of personal grooming and attire, cleanliness, and safety fall within the public charge since the conduct pattern of any particular group reflects the inner maturity, training, ideals and, to some extent, the goals of the individuals involved.  Grooming and attire of themselves would be of small consequence otherwise.

 

The following items of appearance and wearing apparel will not be permitted:

  1. Articles of clothing with spikes, chains, spiked jewelry, etc.

  2. Bare feet, house shoes, pajamas and blankets
  3. Bare midriff/side and back (This will be checked by student standing in a normal standing position with hands and arms held to the side.)

  5. No Sleeveless shirts, spaghetti straps and halter tops.
  6. Transparent/see through apparel, fishnet
  7. No head covering of any type is to be worn in the school buildings while school is in session. This includes but is not limited to hoods, bandanas and hats. Hats are not allowed in classrooms.
  8. Miniskirts, short shorts, leggings or jeggings; indecent dress
  9. Clothes that display:  1) Profanity, 2) Suggestive language, 3) Drugs, alcohol, or tobacco advertisements

 

  1. Shorts will be permitted with the following guidelines:

1)       Shorts must be no more than 6 inches from the top or the knee cap. No part of the shorts can be more than 6 inches from the top of the knee.
