Does Thornton Middle School have a dress code policy?
Yes, Thornton Middle does have a dress code policy for all students. Dress Code has been updated for the 2021-2022 School Year.
Why School Dress Code?
- School dress code help students focus on their most important task, learning. By eliminating the daily distractions on unregulated school clothing, as well as the peer pressure associated with clothing, the school t-shirts set the tone for a proper work attitude in the classroom, reduce behavior problems, and improve student performance.
- Dress code helps to make the campus safer by eliminating clothing used to intimidate or conceal contraband. In addition, dress code make it easier for school officials to identify any non-students and outsiders.
- A standard of dress enhances school spirit, good self-image and school unity. Just as an athletic team’s uniforms promote unity and spirit, so can a school uniform.
