Grooming of students attending school is generally left up to the good sense and sound judgment
of students, parents and guardians. We understand how a students appearance effects doily
behavior, purpose for being at school and productivity in the classroom. We are making a
concerted effort to establish good grooming and personal character at Fresno High so that our
students will be adequately prepared to enter the mainstream of life. We ask your support in
maintaining the kind of atmosphere that is necessary for and conducive to a good education. The
