I. This group breaks down into three categories:
Those who have been following the dress code policy and have been cooperating.
Those who are not following the dress code policy but who have been unaware that they have been in violation.
Those who are knowingly not following the dress code policy and hoping that they can get away with it.
II. CMS administration, faculty and staff have tried many ways to help you comply with the dress code policy - all of which have brought little success:
Direct announcements from Mr. Mitcham over the school’s public address system.
Talking about the issue at orientation in August.
Sending an email home to parents asking for their help and support.
Confronting many of you and making you change into more appropriate clothes.
III. A new plan of action:
Beginning Monday March 26th, behavioral detentions will be assigned to anyone who is found to be in violation of the CMS dress code.
Parents will be required to bring appropriate clothing to school before the student in violation of the dress code will be allowed back to class.
After Mr. Vonk and I shared this information we left the meeting and CMS counselors Mrs. Bouley and Mrs. Roberts talked with the girls about the specifics of the dress code. I have attached the handout that the counselors gave to the girls.
