    Safety

    We have experienced numerous problems in the past regarding the fit of the uniform. In most instances pants and shirts are brought and worn by students that are several sizes too large.  This opens the door for possible safety concerns. Oversized clothes better allows for concealment of weapons, drugs, drug paraphernalia and becomes a safety hazard because students trip on their pants.  This practice must be discontinued. All uniforms worn by C.T. Janet students must be of  the proper size and fit.  Pants must fit at the waist so as not to fall below the hips and buttocks.  The length of the pants should be to the top of the shoe. Too many students have been in violation of these requirements.

    Violations

    Any student found in violation of dress code as pertains to proper fit will be given a warning letter on the first offense. On the second offense the student will be issued a detention. On the third offense the student will be suspended from school until the problem is addressed by the parent/student and corrected.
