Dress Code


Posted By on May 1, 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

In order to provide an environment conducive to promoting educational excellence with minimum distractions and disruptions of the learning environment, we expect you and your child’s cooperation in complying with the following dress code. All students, both male and female, are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to dress appropriately for school and school functions. A student’s dress, shall:

  • Recognize that extremely brief garments such as tube tops, net tops, halter tops, plunging necklines (front and/or back), clothing that exposes mid-section of the body, miniskirts, and see-through garments are NOT appropriate for school.
  • Ensure that all underwear is completely covered by outer garments.
  • Not include items that are vulgar, obscene, and libelous, or denigrate others on account of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
  • Not promote or endorse the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs, and/or encourage other illegal or violent activities.

Students who violate the dress code shall be required to modify their appearance by covering or removing the offending item, or, if necessary or practical, replacing it with an acceptable item. Any student who refuses to cooperate may be required to have a parent/guardian pick them up or possible suspension.

The Parent Surveys are Back


Posted By on Feb 28, 2018

NYC Parent Survey’s 

Every year, all parents, teachers, and students in grades 6-12 take the NYC School Survey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school. The 2017-2018 version of the NYC School Survey is aligned to the DOE’s Framework for Great Schools and collects important information about a school’s ability to improve student achievement and can support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.

 

Parent Surveys are due by March 23, 2018. Therefore, during Parent Teacher Conference on March 8th & 9th 2018, we will have a room set up for you to complete your survey.

Please feel free to contact me if you have and questions or concerns regarding Parent Teacher Conferences or Parent Surveys at 718-858-0249 ext 8051 or zayas1@uamusicandart.org

Thank you,
