Parent will be charged for said item.

Dress Code Violation Policy:  Emmaus Lutheran School believes in the use of school uniforms and dress code as part of its overall philosophy.  That being the case, students are expected to be in compliance with the dress code/uniform code at all times.  Those that are in violation of the dress code will be sent to the office.  A UNIFORM VIOLATION FORM will be given to students who are sent to the office for non-compliance to the uniform or dress code policies.  Parents will be asked to purchase proper attire from the school or may be given the option to bring proper attire for the student, during which time the student will remain in the school office until student is in proper attire.  Upon a student receives the third UNIFORM VIOLATION FORM during the current school year, a meeting between the student, a parent/guardian, and the principal will be scheduled in order to discuss the violations and rectify the situation.
