          Students of Morning Star School should take pride in wearing their school uniform and be neatly dressed and well-groomed at all times.  Uniforms are to be worn in traditional style, e.g., shirts buttoned and tucked-in; shorts, pants,  and skorts at the proper length.  Over-sized or baggy clothing is not acceptable.  A pleasing appearance, comfortable clothing and neatness contribute to the feeling of well-being of each student.
          The School reserves the right to determine whether a student’s uniform and appearance satisfy the regulations.  The Administration and faculty will be the judges in these matters.  Teachers will inspect regularly to see that students are in compliance with the Dress Code.
          Students who do not adhere to the Dress Code and uniform regulations, will be issued a "Discipline Report" to be signed by the Parent and returned to the school. A second violation will result in a second "Discipline Report" being issued and a phone call being placed to the parents.  Parents or Guardians will be contacted for any additional violations.
