Sebasticook Dress Code
Our Parent/Student Handbook contains an acceptable dress code that teachers attempt to enforce each and every year. As fashions as well as individual tastes change, the school attempts to be consistent while enforcing the rules. The goal of our dress code is to insure that each and every student appears appropriately dressed and in good taste. Please take time to review the dress code and discuss it with your children, and if you do have question, do not hesitate to call.
