In an effort to provide clear guidelines and directions for parents, RMS has followed a strict process to
gather input from all stakeholders. Teachers, parents, students, and administrators have provided
feedback that helped shape the Purpose and Belief Statements around Riverside Middle School’s
Dress Code Policy. The goal of this policy is to promote a safe, respectful, comfortable learning
environment, and with input from all of the stakeholders listed above, we have developed procedures
that intend to not discriminate, disrespect, or degrade an individual or group of individuals. Please see RMS's updated Dress Code Policy at the link below.
