Clever High School Attendance Policy:
Students will not be allowed more than six (6) absences per semester in any class. An absence is defined as missing more than 15 minutes of any class. There are no unexcused or excused absences – just absences. Any student who exceeds six absences in one class in a semester will be in jeopardy of receiving no credit for that class. The parent will receive a notice of accumulating absences after the 4th and 6th absences have been recorded for the respective semester. Additional correspondence for student’s accumulating more than six absences will be sent as needed.
Dress and Appearance
The primary responsibility for proper dress rests with the student and parents. In keeping with established practices of good hygiene, safety, moral and social values, and to provide for a minimum of disruption and a maximum of learning opportunity, the following dress code is established:
- Footwear is required at all time. No house shoes or slippers will be permitted.
- Students may wear shorts to school at any time during the school year. Cut-offs, bicycle shorts, and other tight fitting clothing will not be acceptable. Reasonable short and skirt length will be determined with the following rule: while standing, the student will place the fingertip of his/her middle finger at the center of his/her kneecap while laying the palm of the hand flat against the thigh. If the shorts or skirt do not reach the palm of the hand (beyond the wrist) as it lay flat on the thigh, the student will be considered in violation of the school’s dress code policy.
- Yoga pants, leggings, and tights are considered undergarments and are to be worn as such. Shorts, skirts, and dresses worn with these undergarments must meet the length requirement outlined above.
- Headgear is not to be worn inside the school buildings.
- Teachers of specific courses where safety or health is a factor may require students to adjust hair, shoes, or clothing or both during that class period.
- Any clothing worn shall not have writing, drawings, or emblems that are obscene or derogatory. No clothing will be allowed which advertises or promotes alcoholic products, tobacco products, or drug paraphernalia. Attire or wearing of attire in a manner that suggest gang association is not acceptable.
- Tank tops, halters, backless, low-cut clothing, spaghetti strap tops, net, see through, spandex, and short midriffs are not permitted. Sleeveless shirts must have modest armholes. In addition, girls’ tops must have at least 3-inch straps.
- All tops must have enough length to extend beyond the waistband of pants/skirts/shorts at all times.
- Muscle shirts, cut-off sleeves and mesh football jerseys may only be worn over shirts. Cut-off sleeves will be permitted during PE classes only.
- Clothing styles, unusual grooming or jewelry that create disorder, either in the classroom or while attending school-sponsored activities, will not be acceptable.
- Students are discouraged from wearing athletic jackets from other schools to school or school activities.
- Dress and grooming will not disrupt the teaching/learning process or draw undue attention to an individual student.
- Jeans, slacks, pants, skirts, or shorts will be worn at waist level.
- Clothing with holes that create an inappropriate appearance or that are distracting are prohibited.
