Duluth High School acknowledges that good grooming and personal attire positively affect student achievement and conduct. Duluth’s dress code is designed to maintain an academic focus in the classroom and on campus.
Instruction is interrupted when a student has to be seen by an administrator because of inappropriate dress. If in the judgment of the administration or staff, a student is dressed inappropriately, the student will be required to change clothing. Often, the student has to miss instruction time while waiting for a change of clothing to be brought to the school. Time out of class will be regarded as unexcused.
Duluth’s administration and staff would like the cooperation of the students and parents in reviewing the student’s dress to insure it meets the following dress code guidelines before the student comes to school.
Please review the Duluth Student Handbook for specific dress code expectations.
Students are allowed to use their cell phone/electronic device before school, between classes and during lunches. During instructional time (class time), cell phones/electronics MUST BE TURNED OFF AND OUT OF SIGHT unless otherwise prescribed by the teacher. Headphones and like electronic equipment should be used in one ear only (one in and one out). Safety and security necessitates that students are able to communicate with faculty and staff at all times.
VIOLATION OF THIS RULE WILL RESULT IN THE FOLLOWING*:
- 1ST Offense – Warning
- 2nd Offense - 3 days Restricted Lunch
- 3rd Offense - 5 days Restricted Lunch
- 4th Offense - one day ISS
- 5th Offense - Use administrative discretion
It is the student’s responsibility to secure personal items while at school. THE SCHOOL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OR THEFT OF PERSONAL PROPERTY.
*Note: Students that violate the cell phone policy in the 9th grade Academy will have their phones turned in to the 9th grade office for the remainder of the day and will be assigned three days of restricted lunch on the first offense. Students may pick up their cell phones from the 9th grade office before leaving for the day.
Please review the Duluth Student Handbook for further information.
