HPA Uniform Policy
All kindergarten through eighth grade students at High Point Academy will be required to wear uniforms. Parents are expected to monitor student dress to ensure compliance with the required uniform. Students not meeting the expectations of the school dress code may be required to call home and have a change of clothes brought to them. These students may be required to remain in the office until they can change. The following process will be used to enforce the HPA uniform policy:
- Documented Warning
- Parent notified to bring uniform for student
- Official Write Up with consequence
*If there are repeated issues with compliance additional actions may be needed
