Dress Code

Fort Gibson Middle School

DRESS CODE

Good grooming promotes pride and good behavior. The foundation of a dress code is to provide appropriate standards for student appearance and to assist in maintaining student behavior that is instrumental to the learning environment. Good grooming is a cooperative effort of the school, parents, and students. Following the dress code will eliminate the necessity of correcting students for improper dress. As situations arise, changes/additions may be made to this dress code. During the school year notification of a change will be made by intercom or bulletin.
