Stambaugh Middle School

2022 – 2023 Dress Code Policy

A positive relationship exists between a student’s actions/accomplishments and the way he/she dresses. The appearance of any young person is the responsibility of the individual and his/her parents. We expect students to maintain the type of appearance that is not a distraction to teachers or other students. All Stambaugh Middle School students are to be in school uniform while at school or representing the school at alternate locations.
