The school has the responsibility to promote the basic rules of sanitation, safety, neatness, and modesty while on campus. Research has demonstrated that schools with dress codes set a tone for serious study, facilitate school pride, and enhance overall safety. Students who repeatedly violate the dress code are subject to suspension. All modifications and changes are up to the discretion of the principal and administrative staff as the needs arise.

Additional Dress Code Information
In addition to the Uniform Dress Code above, several other restrictions are routinely enforced at MASSA. Bandanas, either worn or carried, are prohibited. No hats or visors are permitted in the buildings. Unnatural hair color or body art (tattoos), which may distract others, are not permitted. Piercing of the nose, eyebrows, lips, tongue, etc. are prohibited. Piercings are allowed in ears only.
We have an "open door" policy which means that parents are always welcome to observe their children in class.
