Now that the warmer weather has arrived, we would appreciate your assistance with meeting our MEMS Dress Code Policy. We have included it below for your reference.

APPROPRIATENESS OF DRESS
School dress must be appropriate and non-disruptive to the educational process. It is the expectation of Manchester Elementary•Middle School that students dress appropriately for weather conditions and for the activities of the day.

Students are not permitted to wear hats or coats during the school day as they are considered outdoor clothing. Students may wear hats just as they wear coats, when entering the building and exiting the building to go outdoors.

Students may not wear clothing with profanity, offensive language, slogans or pictures that have double meanings, which are offensive; sexually suggestive and/or explicit (including belly shirts, etc.); related to alcohol, tobacco, or illegal substances; have harassing statements; suggest sexual harassment; are violent, or suggest/promote violent behaviors/events; suggest/promote illegal activity. In addition, students must wear clothes that fully cover their undergarments. Extremely baggy pants that will not stay up are not appropriate without a belt. If a student is dressed in an inappropriate manner, he/she will be asked to change.

Other specifics regarding appropriate dress include:

Tops must completely cover stomach and cannot show cleavage. 
Shorts cannot be too short or inappropriate in any other way.. Administrators will be the final and only determiner of appropriate length.

IMPORTANT Re: After School Program Payments
Payments for your child/children are expected in advance for the week/days your child will attend. Payments may be sent to the MEMS office. All balances will be kept current and if there are questions about a balance please contact the director Amanda Butler. An unpaid balance will mean your child/children will not be able to attend the program. We encourage families to apply for state financial assistance. For children receiving state financial assistance (subsidy), parents/guardians are expected to apply at the start of your child's attendance. See the director for more information on how to apply or visit dcf.vermont.gov/cdd. If you do not receive the subsidy, you will be required to cover any costs that have occurred. All information is kept in strict confidence.

The online version is a fully searchable document. While viewing the document, you may use your computer’s search feature (Command F on a Mac) to locate a topic of interest using a key word. For example, if you would like information on the dress code, you may enter the word “dress” in the search bar, then return, and you will automatically be taken to the key word in the document.
