Student Dress Code In cooperation with students, parents, teachers, and administration, Goodnight School will adhere to a uniform dress policy. This policy is designed with the intent of improving school culture, safety, and pride for those who attend Goodnight School. It was decided by the staff, administration, and the greater Goodnight community that a standardized dress policy will improve academic achievement, safety, student focus, self-esteem, and school spirit. ALL STUDENTS ATTENDING GOODNIGHT SCHOOL MUST ADHERE TO THE UNIFORM DRESS POLICY, AND WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND CLASSES UNTIL THEY ARE OUTFITTED INAPPROPRIATE APPAREL, AS WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO DRESS FOR SUCCESS. PARENTS/GUARDIANS ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO SUPPORT THE POLICY.

- Students may wear designated Goodnight t-shirts, which include field day shirts, the rhinestone Goodnight shirt, or the Goodnight logo shirts sold at designated vendors such as Embroidery Plus and the Spirit Store.

- Obvious make-up such as eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, or lipstick is not allowed—this is distracting to the learning and social environment. Artificial fingernails are also not allowed---these make it difficult for the child to write or use a computer.

PARENTS WILL BE CALLED THE FIRST TIME TO BRING APPROPRIATE SCHOOL CLOTHING IF A CHILD DOES NOT COME TO SCHOOL DRESSED ACCORDING TO THE SCHOOL DRESS CODE. THE SECOND TIME COULD RESULT IN AN OFFICE DISCIPLINE REFERRAL. PLEASE AVOID THIS BY ADHERING TO OUR SCHOOL DRESS CODE.

- “Show-n-tell” time is scheduled at the individual teacher’s discretion. Please make advance arrangements for live animals or other unusual show-n-tell items.
- Any money brought to school should be in a sealed envelope with the child’s name, room number, amount, and purpose written outside.
- Trading, buying, and selling of personal items is strongly discouraged due to conflicts that may arise. We will not waste valuable school time figuring these types of conflicts out.
