Dress Code Policy

Meeker Middle School’s new dress code to be implemented in 2023-24 promotes a positive, inclusive, safe environment that helps students focus without distraction on learning.  The dress code below honors school spirit, student comfort, individual expression, and busy family life.  The code was developed with student, staff, and parent input.  Students who are out of compliance with this code will be asked to remedy the situation to meet the following expectations:

Borrowed Dress Code or School Appropriate Clothing

If students are out of compliance with the Dress Code or Uniform Policy, they may borrow clothing from the clothing closet if items are available. The student’s non-dress code items will be kept in the main office. When the borrowed item is returned, freshly laundered, the student will receive their non-dress code item back. A weekly return reminder will be given to the student. After 30 days, the non-uniform item will be donated to charity.
