The St. Croix District Superintendent of Schools advises parents, guardians, students and the general public of the mandated dress code requirements for district public schools. “The dress code for students in the St. Croix District should be appropriate for the school’s environment. As a general rule, what you wear is not to distract either the teacher or your fellow students from the learning process. Clothing which displays offensive slogans, pictures or messages is not allowed. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in the student being sent home until the correction(s) to their attire has/have been made. The St. Croix District has a zero tolerance. policy toward prejudice of any form,” said St. Croix District Superintendent of Schools Gary Molloy.
