  • Flip-flops are NOT allowed, but crocs or your favorite fuzzy slippers are encouraged!
  • Shorts or tank tops are NOT allowed (shorts or tank tops are never allowed on dress down days).
  • Clothing must be appropriate (if in doubt wear something else).

TUESDAY: Journée des jumeaux Twin Day – Oct 5

  • Students may be out of dress code only if they dress nearly identically with at least one other student or if two or more students are dressed in the same identifiable theme.
  • Best dressed twins will receive special recognition and be photographed for the yearbook. See Mr. Dowling, Mr. Miller, or Dean Cal if you have questions about what is or is not appropriate.
