La Reina High School recognizes that a person’s appearance shows her positive self-image and ability to be self-disciplined. Students should be dressed in a way that is conducive to La Reina’s academic environment. What is appropriate in recreational situations may not be appropriate at school. Dress and grooming should give an appearance of cleanliness, orderliness, and modesty.
Uniform regulations are in force the entire school day. A student may be referred to an administrator and may be excluded from class until the inappropriate choices are remedied. Any class missed will be considered unexcused.
