APPEARANCE AND ATTIRE
The purpose of Trinity’s Dress Code is to establish an atmosphere conducive to learning and foster pride
in appearance. All students are required to dress appropriately in accordance with the dress code
outlined in the Student/Parent Handbook.
Dress must be neat, clean, and modest. Students must be in
dress code from 7:55 AM through 2:35 PM. Students serving detention must also follow dress code
rules. Dress Code requirements apply on field trips and midterm and final exam days. If students are in
violation of the Dress Code, parents/guardians will be called and asked to bring appropriate clothing for
the day and students may be subject to disciplinary action.
Repeated infractions will result in a mandatory parent meeting and Pioneer Community Service.
Exceptions to Trinity’s Dress Code may be approved by an Administration, and will be shared with the
school community on specific occasions.
