Dress Code Description

Manner of Dress and Personal Appearance
We depend on parents to work with the school in maintaining the appearance standards of the dress code by checking students before they leave for school ,making sure they are groomed properly. It is understood that enrollment in FHS means a pledge on the part of both parents and students to abide by these dress code standards. Please read this section with your children to make sure they understand and agree to follow this code.
