Dress Code

All students are expected to take pride in their appearance and to dress and groom in a manner that will not distract from the academic environment at OPA. This means clothing must be school-appropriate and promote a safe environment. It is the responsibility of parents and students to ensure compliance with the dress code. As styles change or if questions arise, the school administration, as the OPA Board of Director’s designee, has the authority to determine if a student’s dress is in keeping with this policy. Students are expected to follow the dress code from the first bell (8:05 am) to the last bell (3:00 pm) each day.
