Dress Code

Avondale Meadows Middle School students are young professionals who are learning the habits of adult professionals, including the habits of professional dress. Our dress code must be followed at all times (including appropriate belts and shoes).

Why do you have a dress code?

Our dress code is a part of the process for preparing students to be productive and contributing citizens. Just as AMMA has a dress code for its staff, most jobs and workplaces have a dress code for their employees. If employees come to work out of dress code, they are often sent home to change. AMMS approaches its dress code in the same way.

What if my child is out of dress code?

Parents will be informed if their child is out of dress code, and will be asked to bring the proper clothing to school immediately. If this is not possible, then the student will be required to wear substitute clothing, stay in the office, or will be sent home depending on the amount of dress codes infractions the student has received.
