submitted by Alvirne High School Alvirne High School rules and regulations will be covered during student assemblies on the first two days of school. Two issues that come up more often than we would like are inappropriate dress and the use of cell phones. It is our hope that with this information, students will be prepared to help us create a positive learning and working environment for everyone. The specifics regarding these issues: Dress Code at Alvirne High School As we look at the start of another
school year, choosing clothes that are appropriate for school is not always an easy thing. What may be appropriate for our students to wear in a social situation is not always the right thing for an educational setting. Please use the following as a guide to help you: 1. Student’s pants, shorts, and skirts must be worn around the waist. For a definition, the waist is considered to be at or

above the hip bones. At no time should underwear of any kind be showing. This includes when a student sits down.
2. Student’s shorts and skirts must be of an appropriate length. We have an easy test to determine appropriate length. Have your student put their hands straight down at their sides without pulling up their shoulders. If the garment is above the longest finger tip, it is too short.
3. Student’s shirts and blouses must have shoulder straps that are a minimum of one inch wide. This would mean that garments that have spaghetti straps, halter-tops, and those that have no shoulder straps would be inappropriate.
4. Holes in pants, shorts, and skirts must not be above the fingertips. This is a fashion for many students. Please use the same measure for skirt and short length. Holes
Tips to get a leg up on back-to-school shoe shopping
She lived in sandals all summer long and he barely took his cleats off, even to go to bed. Summer fun and casual style may leave your kids facing back-to-school season in serious need of some new shoes. “Notebooks, pens and new clothes aren’t the only fresh supplies children need when heading back to school. Quality shoes that provide the support growing feet need are among the most important purchases on any back-to- school shopping list,” says Dr. Kathleen Stone, president of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). While your kids will certainly have something to say about the style of shoes they want, back-to-school shoe shopping isn’t child’s play. Parents should consider several important factors before buying new shoes for their chil-

dren, the APMA advises. * Take your child shoe shopping with you, rather than buying something without your child present. Every shoe fits differently and buying something in your child’s size doesn’t necessarily ensure a proper, comfortable fit. Mea- sure your child’s feet (both of them, since feet are rarely exactly the same size) and have her try the shoes on. Plus, letting a child have a say in the shoe-buying process can help ensure she adopts healthy foot habits later in life. Children’s foot health is as important as adult foot health. * Feet swell later in the day, so it’s best to try on shoes later in the day when feet are their largest. * When evaluating a shoe, look for a stiff heel. Press on both sides of the heel counter to measure for stiffness; it shouldn’t collapse. The shoe should bend with your child’s toes. It shouldn’t be too stiff or bend too much in the toe box area. It should also be rigid, and should never twist in the middle. * Don’t rely on last year’s shoes. Children’s feet grow like the rest of their bodies. Shoe and sock sizes may change every few months as their feet grow. Even if last season’s shoes are in good condition, they likely won’t fit properly after several months of your child’s feet growing. * Never hand down footwear. A used shoe may be the right size for your child, but still might not fit comfortably, especially if it’s seen a lot of wear and tear. Just because the shoe fit one child comfortably, doesn’t mean it will fit another the same way. Also, sharing shoes can spread foot fungi like athlete’s foot and nail fungus. * Buy for the larger foot. Mismatched feet are more common than not. Measure your child’s feet to see which is larger and select shoes that best fit the larger foot. * Choose shoes that are comfortable right away. Avoid shoes that need a “break-in” period. And be sure your child tries shoes on while wearing the type of socks he’ll be wearing with the shoes on a regular basis. “Healthy feet and comfortable shoes play important roles in children’s overall health,” Stone says. “Parents should monitor their children’s foot health and seek the advice of a podiatrist if they notice a problem. Podiatrists are specially trained to diagnose and treat ailments of the foot and ankles in people of all ages.” You can find a podiatrist at the APMA’s Website, www.APMA.org

are not appropriate above the fingertips even if they are at a pocket.
5. Student’s shirts and blouses should not be too low in the front. This is a difficult one for us to deal with. The standard that we use is that a shirt should be two-three inches from the student’s collar bone.
6. No midriff should be showing at any time. We have a simple test for this. Have the student stand with their hands stretched out over their head; if there is skin showing, the outfit the student is wearing is not appropriate.
7. Student’s clothing should not be see-through. Some garments are very sheer and can easily be seen through. Most of our problems come from white pants that allow under garments to show through.
8. Garments that advertise tobacco or alcohol are not
9. Garments that have designs or text that have sexual innuendo or lack of respect for others is not acceptable.
10. Garments that feature any logo or symbol of “Insane Clown Posse,” “Hatchetman,” “Juggalos,” or “Jugalettes” are not appropriate during the school day or at any school event.
These guidelines are all in the
Parent/Student Handbook. We need your help in creating an appropriate educational environment. A Note About Cell Phones The use of cell phones is prohibited
during the school day. The only exception to this is prior to the 7:20 a.m. warning bell and during a student’s assigned lunch. Cell phones may only be used in the cafeteria during these designated times. If a student’s cell phone is activated during the day or if a student is found using a cell phone for any reason, the student will be asked to turn their phone over to the staff member who notices the situation. The student needs to comply with the request to avoid further disciplinary action. The phone will be brought to the main office and must be picked up by a parent.
