DRESS CODE GUIDELINES
Excellence in All We Do
KSDA DRESS CODE
It is Kirkland Seventh-day Adventist School’s desire to project a positive Christian image on campus and in the community. The principles that guide our dress code are standards of excellence that encourage modesty, simplicity, and a focus on learning instead of fashion. Therefore, proper grooming and modesty should be always reflected in the students’ appearance, while on campus and while attending school sponsored activities.
A unified dress code can help students to perceive each other as equals. With fewer occasions or causes for rivalry, teachers and students can focus attention on the main reason for our school--a sound, quality Christian education.
A uniform dress code can be a constant reminder of the special nature of a private school, and can help foster valuable group consciousness, which is important in a society emphasizing personal individuality.
A unified dress code can help students learn to distinguish themselves by performance, achievement, and other important ways rather than by non-merit reasons such as wardrobe or fashion.
An atmosphere of professionalism and dignity can be encouraged with a unified dress code, and students can learn to appreciate the identification and the privilege expressed by wearing a uniform representing Kirkland Seventh-day Adventist School.
