MOL Dress Code

Updated on Jul 10, 2019 10:38 AM by Prillwitz, Stacy

Since Christian love and respect should be reflected in all we say and do, Mount Olive staff and students are expected to dress in a God-pleasing manner. Modesty, good taste, cleanliness and neatness must be important factors to consider when getting ready for school. Modesty and good taste refer to avoiding such things as inappropriate T-shirts, extremes in hair style and color, and short legwear. Cleanliness and neatness refer to your general appearance and the condition of your clothes which should not be worn-out, torn, or dirty. All students must have a pair of gym shoes reserved specifically for indoor use.

The dress code is in effect as soon as students enter the school until their departure. Failure to comply with any of the items in the dress code may result in a phone call to parents so the situation may be remedied. If this does not provide a solution, Mount Olive will provide the student with clothing that fits our dress code. Any dress code violation by a student in grades 6-8 will result in a warning. After the first warning, any subsequent violation will result in a detention. Students in 3K-5 that violate dress code will be handled on an individual basis. Since styles change, the faculty and administration reserves the right to determine what is inappropriate for our learning environment.

For the sake of order, when there are differences of opinion concerning dress, the judgment of the Mount Olive faculty and administration will be respected.
