Student Dress Code

Student Dress Code

Fall weather is on its way.  Parents please make sure your child is dressed for the weather.  Have students wear layers so they are warm enough on the cool mornings, but comfortable during the warmer afternoons. 
Students need to make sure they are dressed in a manner that doesn’t distract from focus in the classroom.  Parents can help by ensuring that their child adheres to the Griffith Dress Code:            
 (1) Skirt, dress and short hemlines should be no shorter than the tip of the longest finger with hands hanging at the student’s side, (2) Clothes with holes or tears and other similar attire will not be permitted, (3) Chest or undergarments should not show at any time.  Sleeveless blouses must cover at least two inches of each shoulder, (4) Necklines and leggings worn should be modest and appropriate.

New on the 2015-16 calendar are three designated possible weather makeup days at the end of May. The Kansas State Department of Education has required that school districts designate days on the calendar for possible weather makeup days if a district needs to take them.

The calendar may change at the discretion of the Board of Education and/or district administration.
