If a student is not in proper uniform, she will be assigned detention. The administration exercises full authority in the interpretation of issues pertaining to uniform regulations. She may be sent to the front office until she has obtained a proper uniform. Students who fail to meet the uniform requirements, or who receive two or more uniform detentions, may have her uniform replaced and her parents will be billed for the cost of the uniform.
