Dress Code – Dress for Success Rochester Junior High School is committed to preparing students for the next steps in their lives such as high school, college, career, and postsecondary life success. Part of navigating the world is understanding the importance of context. Choosing the right attire for different contexts is an important life skill. Clothing shall not be of a style nor shall it contain words or depictions that create a clear and present likelihood that it will cause a material and substantial disruption of the proper and orderly operation and discipline of the school or school activities. Words or messages that are so offensive to any individual or group as to create an immediate reaction disruptive to the orderly operation of the school or school activities are prohibited. The “Dress for Success Norms” encourage students to keep their focus on learning, maintaining age-appropriate expectations, and providing an environment that allows students to feel comfortable and to express their individuality appropriately. Rochester staff have taken great strides to ensure that these straightforward Dress for Success Norms apply equally to both male and to female students. We strive to enforce these rules respectfully and without judgment. DRESS FOR SUCCESS WHAT TO WEAR: All students must follow these norms at school and all school-sponsored events. This includes, but is not limited to, school activities, field trips, and school-sponsored afterschool programs. Students should dress appropriately for school, wearing clothing that is well-suited for a school environment. Clothing will completely cover torso through top of chest, including backside in non-see-through materials. The front and back of a shirt (or top of any kind) must be connected by at least 2 inches of fabric over both shoulders Clothing must cover all undergarments. Head and face will be uncovered. Appropriate headgear may be worn for warmth and protection outdoors and inside for religious reasons or special circumstances. Clothing, accessories, and visible tattoos that display or promote negative messages are not permitted. These could include, but are not limited to, illegal or prescription drugs, gangs, weapons, alcohol, or tobacco-related information, obscenities, putdowns, stereotypes, sexual innuendo, plainly offensive subject material, or disruptive activities. Safety is paramount. Footwear (sneakers, boots, sandals, etc.) must be worn at all times. State law specifies that safety glasses must be worn in shops and labs when working with machinery and/or chemicals. Pierced jewelry that presents a safety hazard, spiked apparel, spike accessories, animal collars, or chains that can be used as weapons are prohibited. OUTSIDE THE NORMS: When a student’s outfit does not meet the Dress for Success Norms, he or she will be asked politely to address the issue. This can be done in whatever way the student feels works best for him or her. Options include, but are not limited to, the following: Adjusting the fit of the clothing (if possible to do so and meet the guidelines) Putting on something else that is already at school (PE uniform, jacket, etc.) Calling home and requesting a change of clothes R Rochester staff will address noncompliance with the Dress for Success Norms in a respectful and professional manner; our intent is not to shame individual students for their wardrobe choices. We would expect that no student should need to be asked more than twice, in one year, to adjust their attire to meet the norms. Having to ask more than twice becomes an issue of disrespect rather than an issue about dress. We appreciate parent and student cooperation in our efforts to make our Dress for Success Norms and their enforcement fair, balanced, and gender-neutral. Lunch Menu: August menu Monday Rocket Line - Beefy Nachos Corner Crust Pizza -BBQ Bacon Chicken Custom Bros Grill - Spicy Popcorn Chicken/Boneless Wings Salad Bar - Fajita Chicken Tuesday Rocket Line - Chicken & Noodles Corner Crust Pizza - Meat Lover’s Pizza Custom Bros Grill - Curly Fries Salad Bar - Taco
