Dress Code

Tabernacle School
Dress Code Guidelines
2021-2022


Student appearance and attention to grooming are important factors in a safe, focused learning environment.  Standards such as dress codes play a large part in preparing students for a future in the broader world beyond Tabernacle School. 

Each student’s appearance should reflect a positive, appropriate image of themselves and their school. 

Administrators, faculty, and staff have the final decision when enforcing student dress and grooming standards during school and all school-related activities. 

Both parents and students should take the time to become familiar with Tabernacle’s policies and standards.  The sites below have images and descriptions of the uniform options described and approved by Tabernacle.
