  • School Dress Code

    Please be reminded that all students must adhere to the school dress code. We need the assistance of our parents to make sure that students arrive to school appropriately dressed and ready to learn. We may contact you and ask you to bring appropriate clothing for your child if they arrive to school in clothing that violates the dress code. 

    The following is an excerpt from the NRHS 2014-2015 Student-Parent Handbook:

    All students are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to dress appropriately for school and school functions.  Students and their parents have the primary responsibility for acceptable student dress and appearance.  Teachers and all other district personnel should exemplify and reinforce acceptable student dress and helps students develop an understanding of appropriate appearance in school.

    Students’ clothing, grooming, and appearance shall be safe appropriate, and not disrupt or interfere with the rights of others or the educational process.
    Include footwear at all times.
    Hats, bandannas, or scarves are not to be worn in the building except for medical or religious purposes.
    Short shorts, mini and/or micro mini-skirts, see-through garments, tops with “plunging necklines,” crop tops, halters, clothing that reveals bare midriffs or underwear, are prohibited and should not be worn to school.  (A guideline for the appropriate length of skirts, dresses, and shorts is no more than 3-4 inches above the top of the knee.)
    Pants may not hang down, restrict movement, or reveal underwear.
    Clothing may not include items that are vulgar, obscene or libelous, or that denigrate others on account of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation or disability.
    Clothing may not promote, endorse or encourage the use of alcohol, tobacco, controlled substances, illegal drugs or other illegal or violent activities.
    Students who violate the student dress code shall be asked to modify their appearance by covering or removing the offending article of clothing.  If necessary or practical, the student may be asked to replace the clothing with an acceptable item.  Any student who refuses to do so shall be subject to discipline, up to and including in-school suspension for the day.  Any student who repeatedly fails to follow the dress code shall be subject to further discipline, up to and including out-of-school suspensions.

    We thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us to maintain a learning environment that is appropriate for all students.

New Rochelle High School Honored for Innovative Implementation of Digital Content and Curriculum

 The Center for Digital Education honored New Rochelle High School for breaking new ground in the use of digital content and curriculum this past July.  The award recognized the district's innovative implementation of digital curriculum based on the writing and film program created by English teacher Mr. Anthony Stripe.

The Center for Digital Education (CDE), in collaboration with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), honored the k-12 schools selected  at the fourth-annual Digital Content and Curriculum Achievement Awards (DCCAA) in Denver.

“It’s exciting to see that schools all over the country are moving from pilot projects to full-scale implementation of digital content and curriculum,” said Dr. Kecia Ray, executive director of the Center for Digital Education. “This year’s honorees are taking the practice of education to new heights that show great promise for other districts to follow.”

DCCAA awards are presented to schools in three categories: Large District/Schools (12,000 or more students), Medium District/Schools (3,000 - 12,000 students) and Small District/Schools (up to 3,000 students).
