As you know, Eaglecrest is proud to be a school full of scholars, athletes, and artists. We believe it is our duty to educate our students about the ways in which we can best present these identities to those with whom we interact. During an assembly today, we took time to examine the messages we communicate to those around us by the decisions we make regarding our appearance.
The focus of the assembly today was to talk about the confidence and skills students need to be successful in the classroom and beyond. Some of the content was based upon the messages that young people receive from the media about what is prioritized in society. We also discussed how we can create a culture of respect, empowerment, and achievement each and every day at Eaglecrest. We concluded the presentations with information regarding student dress and our expectations that students present themselves to be scholars every day at Eaglecrest High School. In this way, we hope to prepare our young people for post-secondary success by emphasizing the impact appearance may have on the way others perceive us.
We reminded students about the Cherry Creek School Board Policy JICAB, which explains the dress code that was adopted by the Board in September 2000. Further, we communicated the system we will use to address inappropriate attire. You will see that system below.
Level One Dress Code Violation: Ask student to change, contact parent.
Level Two Dress Code Violation: Ask student to change, contact parent, assign one period detention.
Level Three Dress Code Violation: Ask student to change, invite parent to come to Eaglecrest for a meeting, assign in-school suspension.
Level Four Dress Code Violation: Assign out of school suspension, invite parent to come to Eaglecrest for a meeting.
Thank you for your support as we create a culture of achievement and success during the school day. We are always proud to be Raptors.
Dean of Students
