Wow...101 page story and poetry...sounds more effective than Wellbutrin and the patch and enough to turn any coke-guzzling, nicoteine fiend into a "cherry" ::: below is the current SI dress code from their website...is the school now co-ed or are we talking kilts here?

. Dress Code
Personal Appearance

It is the responsibility of the parents to see that their student leaves home properly dressed and groomed for school and school-sponsored activities. The enforcement of dress and grooming standards are the responsibility of the faculty supported by the Deans’ Office. Students are expected to be clean and neat in their personal grooming, observing the standards of modesty, moderation, and good taste. Extraordinary attire that disrupts due order and decorum within the classroom is prohibited. The Deans have the authority to call a student’s parents to pick up a student who is improperly dressed or have the parent bring appropriate clothes to the Deans’ Office. The periods missed until the student is appropriately dressed will be considered unexcused absences; the student will not be allowed to make up any missed homework, tests, or in-class assignments. Offenders of the dress code will be given after-school detention. A total of three detentions in a school year will result in a Technical Suspension of one day, at which time the student will report to the Deans’ Office and write a reflection paper. The absence is “unexcused” and the periods missed will be made up in after-school detention. Subsequent detentions for dress code violations may result in suspension and disciplinary probation. The Administration reserves the right to make individual determinations affecting dress code policy.
