As a student of Smithtown Christian School (SCS), I am expected to honor Jesus Christ by striving to glorify and obey Him. My clothing and appearance must comply with the dress code of the school. The school district does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, sex, age or disability in admission to its programs, services or activities, in access to them, in the treatment of people, or in any aspect of its operations. At SCS, we take our dress code policy very seriously.
We believe that our students should dress modestly and appropriately for school. We also believe that our students should be respectful of their peers and the school environment. The dress code policy for SCS is as follows: All students must wear clothing that is neat and clean. Clothing must be free of holes, rips, tears, and fraying.
No clothing with offensive language or graphics is allowed. Shorts and skirts must be no shorter than mid-thigh length. No tank tops or spaghetti straps are allowed. Shoes must be closed-toe and closed-heel.
In addition to the dress code policy, SCS also has a policy regarding medical episodes in classrooms. In January, parents and other individuals reported that four students had medical episodes in a classroom in Tower G. The school district responded by issuing a statement that they were not considering any future environmental testing of the building. However, during the week of January 9th, parents and other individuals reported that four students experienced medical episodes in a classroom in Tower G.
Insana, Thompson and Wilson requested that the school district hire another environmental testing company and to have tests done on deep soils. Broderick informed the school district that it appeared to be an isolated sample and that federal health authorities would later determine that the district was right not to perform more copper tests.
