It has been said that the way you dress may affect how people see you or how you see yourself, so one of the many changes at Central this year is the dress code. Our principal, Mr. Phil Iannarone, and the administrative team have decided to make a few minor changes to the teacher and student dress code. These changes include the exclusion of hoodies and earbuds, with a slight adjustment in footwear, and the addition of denim/jean jackets. The complete dress code can be referenced at the school’s website; the changes made are meant to help students stay focused on school and be on task.

“The team concluded that adjusting our dress code [which were only minor, with the biggest changes being no hoodies and no earbuds] would allow additional measures of safety for all and would better support student focus during instruction,” explained Iannarone.

Although the change in the dress code may put more restrictions on what students wear, there will be opportunities to break away from the normal school clothes on assigned dress down days. These dress down days are meant to be incentives from the administration for attendance or other goals they would like to see the school achieve. The dress down days will most likely be a jeans dress down day, which consists of changing the school required dress code khakis to blue jeans. Another possible announced dress down day could be a spirit day or jersey day, where students are able to wear their school sport, choir, or band shirt.

“Students should have the freedom to wear hoodies and be able to express themselves within certain boundaries,” expressed Sophomore Luke Keown.

The administration hopes that the new established dress code this year will show that students are dressing for success and are striving to be the best they can be.
