CORBIN MIDDLE SCHOOL DRESS CODE Corbin Middle School has designed our dress code to ensure our success in three major areas: 1. To ensure the safety of our students. 2. To avoid distractions. 3. To prevent our students being subjected to vulgarity, violence and/or the promotion of alcohol and drugs. Students should enter Gym or Main Building in dress code. Students should remain in dress code until they permanently exit the building for the day. Sponsors/coaches of extra-curricular activities may use their discretion once their activity begins. If a student is dressed inappropriately they will be written up and disciplined according to the Corbin Middle School Code of Conduct. 1st offense=BL; 2nd offense=ASD; 3rd offense=SD. If a students’ clothing is deemed offensive or vulgar, they will be asked to call their parent for a change of clothes or be sent to the Youth Service Center for a change. If clothes are borrowed from the YSC, they should be returned at the end of the day. If your clothing choice is questionable, dress on the side of caution and do not wear it. Gym or equipment bags will not enter the school. They will be placed in the designated area in the gym. (We need a better procedure that includes the ability to secure these – major safety issue) Backpacks and purses should be placed in the lockers before A & A. All outerwear must be placed in lockers before A&A.
