Dress Code

All staff members are required to enforce the dress code. The administration/designee will be the final judge as to whether a student’s clothing meets policy requirements. We rely on the good taste and judgment of the students and the responsibility of the parents to advise their children of the appropriate dress in accordance with Flagler Schools’ Dress Code Policy.
