Facial Piercing

  • It is the policy of this school district that students shall dress in a manner which is appropriate for an effective educational environment. While recognizing the importance of allowing students to express their individuality through their attire, the school is responsible for ensuring that student dress is conducive to a positive and respectful environment for all students. All students are, therefore, required to dress in a manner that promotes a safe and healthy school environment, and is not disruptive of the educational climate and process. (Policy number 517)
  • Facial piercing has been judged to be a disruption to both the student and to those around them. Therefore, facial piercing including but not limited to lip rings, eye brow rings, nose rings and tongue rings are prohibited to all students at Wendell Middle School.

 

The Standard Uniform Code of Dress may be amended throughout the year as deemed necessary and appropriate by the school's administration.
