Because TCHS Honors Night on April 25th is a school event, our school dress standards will apply. We want our students to be recognized in a positive manner for their academic accomplishments and not criticized for their clothing choices.
Appropriate attire for males and females is expected. Students should wear dress casual or Sunday attire for the ceremony. Males and females can wear dress pants and shirts, and females can also wear dresses or skirts. Students who may have a hardship getting appropriate attire are encouraged to contact their guidance counselor.
When planning what your student will wear, please consult the complete dress code that can be found in the student handbook under the student tab on our TCHS webpage. It is also located in the Student Code of Conduct on p. 36-37 both in print and online. Below are highlighted expectations from the dress standards:
- Clothing must not expose cleavage or midriffs.
- Shirts and tops must have sleeves and be appropriately sized (tank tops or spaghetti straps should be covered by a sweater or jacket)
- Pants/skirts should be fastened at the waist and must be knee length or longer; sagging pants are inappropriate. Ladies wearing rompers with a transparent skirt do not meet the dress standard. Leggings can be worn as long as they are worn with a skirt or dress that comes to the knee. Informal clothing such as athletic pants/shorts or pajama pants are inappropriate.
- Head wear of any kind must be removed when entering the building.
- Earrings and pierced jewelry may only be worn on the ears (females only); other facial or exposed body piercing jewelry is not permitted.
Students not in dress code on Honors Night will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony and will be removed from the line. Administrators will check dress code when students arrive. Students who arrive after the ceremony begins will not be allowed to participate.
At TCHS, our students are equipped with Character, Achievement, Respect, Responsibility, Readiness, Excellence and Service. We know our students will maintain the expectations clearly expressed in our school mission statement.
