Dress Code

The dress code of Regis Middle School strives to reflect good taste, neatness, cleanliness and Christian modesty while avoiding trends and fads. Students reflect pride in themselves and their school by the way they dress and act. It is expected that parents/guardians, working with the school, will require their students to leave home and attend school dressed in accordance with these regulations. In order to assist the parents with finding the appropriate clothing the administration has worked with the Dennis Company to provide dress code shorts, skorts and pants. The clothing will be available at Regis. While parents are able to purchase clothing elsewhere, parents whose children do NOT ADHERE to the dress code WILL BE REQUIRED to purchase this clothing for their students to wear to Regis. Please note that no dress code can foresee the changes in trends and fads nor can it be specific to cover ALL situations. The “spirit of the rule” is an important adage to follow when making decisions concerning what to wear to school. The administration reserves the right to interpret dress code. The decisions of the administration are final.
