Please include the student's full name, year of graduation and the reason for the absence, early dismissal or tardy.

Fenwick High School’s student dress code aims to inspire excellence, self-respect and a sense of school identity. It has been our experience that, with the support of the parents and faculty, these guidelines help to engender a positive climate for mature behavior which reinforces good academic performance.
Any student who cannot abide by the dress code due to injury or illness must have written permission from the Dean. To obtain permission, a note indicating the injury or illness must be provided by the student’s doctor to the Dean’s Office. If there is another reason a student is unable to abide by the dress code as it is stated, a parent/guardian should reach out to the Dean of Students directly.
All clothing must be free of markings, tears and patches. Minor dress code violations will result in JUG (detention). Students sent to the Deans’ Office for major dress code violations will be withheld from class until the violation is corrected. The absence from class will be considered unexcused. Any questions about the appropriateness of the dress code or a student’s outfit should be referred to the Deans’ Office.
All uniform materials are available through Lands’ End. Dress code items do not need to be purchased through them, with the exception of Skorts, as long as items meet the standards in the dress code policy (click link to the right). For Lands’ End clothing go to www.landsend.com and look under the school center or visit any local Lands’ End store or vendor.
