It is expected that the personal grooming and the clothes worn by the students at Mauldin will reflect good taste, good judgment, and cleanliness.
While no attempt is made to dictate fashion for individuals, the administration reserves the right to determine when the overall appearance of an individual student is detrimental to the well being of the school and its students.
The following basic guidelines will be followed at all times at Mauldin Middle School (See District Code of Conduct, also):
Teachers will check all students during announcements for appropriateness of their attire and their ID badges. At that time, students inappropriately attired should be sent to the office or their grade level administrator as early as possible. Students will be given the option to call their parents for a change of clothes. Students without an ID will be sent to the Media Center to purchase another ID or to get a temporary ID.
Failure to comply with the dress code policy may result in disciplinary consequences. The administration reserves the right to make the final decision regarding the attire.
