    (click the link above and watch this important video)

    • Males wear solid black dress pants, solid white button up dress shirts, solid black tie (no patterns or prints or bow ties), solid black dress shoes & socks, new cap, tassel and gown.  The only visible jewelry will be class rings (no earrings, necklaces, piercings, etc.) No jeans, tennis shoes, or casual polo-style shirts may be worn.
    • Females should wear dresses/clothing that do not show above or below the gown, and solid black dress shoes, with no rhinestones, brown cork, multicolor, zippers, etc.  ALL ELEMENTS OF THE SHOE MUST BE BLACK.  It is recommended to wear a solid colored dress so that the pattern does not appear through the graduation gown.  If hose are worn, only natural skin tones with no designs may be worn.  The only visible jewelry will be class rings (no earrings, bracelets, necklaces, toe rings, piercings, etc).  Sandals and flip flops are not dress shoes.
    • All graduates will wear a new cap, gown, and tassel.  Females append a collar to their gown by sewing/pinning.  Cell phones must be off.  Honor Cords from preapproved organizations may be worn at Graduation and the Awards Ceremony. 
    • These rules for dress were established by the National Association of Secondary Principals so that the class of 2018 will be one unit and as much alike as possible. 
    • Any graduate not adhering to the dress code will not participate in the event, unless they can quickly adhere to the dress code.
