Dress Code/Uniforms

A higher standard of dress encourages greater respect for individual students and others and results in a higher standard of behavior. Our dress code guidelines indicate appropriate school dress for normal school days. Somerset reserves the right to interpret these guidelines and/or make changes during the school year. Students are expected to follow these guidelines with support from their parents/guardians. Uniforms must be worn everyday (refer to Schools uniform policy). Students who arrive to school without proper uniform may be sent home, and a warning documenting violation of this policy will be issued. After three (3) violations of this policy, the student will be issued a referral form that will be placed in the student’s permanent record.
