Student Dress Code

 

CCS students are expected to wear clothing that is neat, clean, modest, and culturally acceptable in the Hutchinson area. Parents are responsible to ensure that their student is in compliance with the dress code when departing for school. When in doubt, don't wear it/allow it. The student body should encourage each other in submission to all school rules, including dress code. We believe that a willing compliance with these standards prepares students to submit to greater authorities in their lives. Students are expected to be in dress code during the entire school day and at programs and activities unless otherwise indicated. Students will be sent to the office or home for dress code violations.

The administration reserves the right to make changes in the dress code and to make judgments concerning appropriate dress or appearance.
