  • Dress Code

    Duluth High School acknowledges that good grooming and personal attire positively affect student achievement and conduct. Duluth’s dress code is designed to reduce the likelihood of distraction or disruption and 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.

  • Electronics Policy

    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).
