We believe that all students have the right to a safe, healthy school environment. We believe that all students have the responsibility to dress appropriately and uphold basic standards of cleanliness and proper grooming. A students’ dress and appearance should not cause disruption and distraction from the educational process at Somerset Academy Charter School.
The following is the uniform policy that is endorsed and committed to be enforced by Somerset Academy Charter School. Students are required to follow this policy, and failure to do so will result in administrative action taken against all uniform violations. Please Note: Students who are not wearing the correct uniform will be subjected to the Somerset Academy Charter School Discipline Plan.
