Uniform Dress Code for 2012-2013

Montgomery Public Schools believes that requiring neat, clean, and appropriate clothing encourages an atmosphere conducive to learning, work and discipline. Students are required to dress according to Board Policy.



All clothing should be generic (ex. Polo, Tommy, Guess, FUBU, etc. not permitted). Uniforms are to worn every day. Students are expected to be clean and appropriately dressed for school at all times. Dress and appearance must not cause a disruption of present health or safety problems. All students must wear shoes. Clothing as skin-tight or revealing as to provoke or distract other students is disruptive and therefore unacceptable. Hats, other types of head covering, and sunglasses are not to be worn in school buildings, except for medical or safety reasons. The only acceptable jewelry items are wristwatches for all students and stud earrings for girls.

Transportation

Bused Students

Students are required to be at the bus stop at the designated time. Students are to get on and off the bus in a quiet, orderly manner. For the safety of all, students must be seated while the bus is in motion and must be reasonably quiet. The bus driver is responsible for the passengers’ safety and welfare and is to be obeyed at all times. School bus misconduct or vandalism is reported by the driver to the principal or designee on a school bus misconduct report. Repeated offenses may cause suspension of the student from the bus for a period of up to ten (10) days or permanent removal from the bus. New Montgomery Public Schools policy states that “buses are to be treated as rolling class rooms. Therefore, students are subject to the same consequences as in the class room.”

School Bus Rules

The following are general rules that each student is expected to follow:

  1. Only a student assigned to a bus may ride.
  1. Permission to ride on a different bus is not given without written parental consent and a written note from the principal or designee.
  1. Students must board and depart at their assigned bus stop.
  1. In the event of a late bus, students should remain at the bus stop. Transportation will be called by the principal or designee.
  1. Students must remain seated while the bus is in motion.
  1. Students may talk quietly to seat mates only.
  1. Students must refrain from eating, drinking and chewing gum on the bus.
  1. Students may not bring pets, electronic equipment, toys, games or any other dangerous items on the bus.
