Longfellow students and staff expect high standards of conduct and appearance. How you dress not only reflects you, but your school and community as well. The way you dress often determines actions in and out of school. Clothing should be appropriate and comfortable for normal school activities. In order to promote a suitable learning environment and develop professional, responsible citizens who are models of good behavior, the following dress code is required for all students.
If items of clothing or accessories are deemed inappropriate by school personnel, the student will be required to change into loaner clothes that will be provided by the school.  Refusal to conform to the school dress code outlined below, including wearing the loaner clothes as instructed, or repeated dress code violations may be grounds for further discipline, including lowered citizenship or suspension, for defiance.
