Daily Schedule 2016-2017
Please remember that despite some of the fashion trends in magazines and television, there is a Brown School Dress Code that is likely more restrictive than what is portrayed in the media.
Our goal is to create an environment that is conducive to learning and does not present students with distractions. It is also important from a developmental stance that students understand that part of showing self-respect is how we present to others; ten and eleven year old young adults may need adult direction in defining themselves in a way that does not interfere with their purpose at school or with how they want to begin to define themselves to their peers and teachers.
Girls should be able to move comfortably in school in shorts, shirts, and skirts – this movement includes reaching, raising hands, and bending down to get materials out of the locker. Shirts should cover the torso and stomach, and bra straps should not be visible.
Pants or shorts should cover all underwear. Shirs shoulld not be imprinted with graphics or text that relates to alcohol, tobacco, or drugs, or offensive slogans or sayings.
We realize that it can be difficult to shop for school appropriate clothing given what is on display at many department stores, but sometimes just adding a layer, under or over, to what is currently being sold can make it appropriate for school.
