DRESS DOWN DAYS INFO:
On the day of dress down student may dress down using information provided in the school/advisory/google classroom. For example, if instruction read “Students and staff can dress down in gray/black shirt with jeans, but no graphics or rips hole.” Then, student must follow the direction, if they participate in “dress down.”
Another example is: If instruction read “All students will be in a specific type of uniform on particular day. Specifically, all students will wear either the traditional school uniform complete with ties, shirts, khakis, and blazers or the full Motivation High School gym uniform ( Motivation T-shirt and Motivation Sweat pants ONLY – NO SHORTS) due to the Winter Olympic celebration. Again, student must read/listen and follow this if they participate in “Dress Down.”
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
