Dress for Success
DRESS FOR SUCCESS
 
Summer has not yet cooled off and warm days are still here! This weather, along with students still wanting to dress in ‘typical’ summer clothing as they have been used to for 3 months, is different when school starts. The way a person dresses says a lot about where they are going and the activity that they are going to do. If you are going for a job interview or to a formal occasion, the way you dress is very important. If children are “hanging out” on the weekend, shorts and a T-shirt are good choices. When we think about school, however, we want children to be comfortable, but we also want them to dress as if it they were going to their place of business. I would like to ask you to help us monitor the selection of clothing worn to school by your children. Please use the following guidelines to determine what your children should or should not wear to school.
 
·         Children can wear shorts to school, but they must be long enough to come to mid-thigh.
·         Halter-tops, spaghetti straps and bare midriffs are not allowed.
·         Students who wear T-shirts with inappropriate messages that distract from learning will be asked to call home for a change of clothes.
·         Open toed or flip-flop shoes can be a problem on the playground as well as in physical education classes.  Please encourage children to wear shoes that they can play in.
·         Children are not permitted to wear caps or hats in the building.
 
Obviously, the basis of the Cherry Creek School District Student Dress Code is for students to wear clothing that in no way distracts from the teaching/learning environment.  As always, we look forward to you helping us make sure that your children leave home every morning ready to learn and to do their best.
 
As you know, the weather in Colorado (especially as the weather begins to turn) can change several times throughout the day. I strongly recommend that you have your child keep weather-appropriate clothing in his/her backpack for those cooler days.
