~Dress Code…The S.I.S. Parent Council has given strong endorsement to our efforts to maintain school climate through proper dress. Bare backs, midriffs, spaghetti straps, bra-looks, low cut, short shorts baggy pants showing underwear etc…are not considered appropriate school attire. Students may be asked to change or cover up if their outfit is considered inappropriate or makes someone uncomfortable. A rule of thumb for short shorts and skirts…They should reach the tips of fingers with arm hanging straight from the shoulder. We reserve the right to judge the appropriateness of clothing!
