What is the dress code for Conemaugh Township Area School District schools?

We expect our students to dress in a way that shows respect for themselves, for others, and for their school. Students may not wear any clothing that distracts from the learning experience. Specifically, we do not allow:

  • Shirts that expose the midriff
  • Shorts or skirts that do not pass the “fingertip-length” test
  • Clothing that promotes drug- or gang-related activity
  • Spikes, chains, or similar jewelry that may excessively damage school property
  • Spandex outerwear

We reserve the right to determine whether a student’s clothing is appropriate for school. For more details regarding our dress code, please review the appropriate student handbook.

What will happen if my child becomes ill while at school?

If a student becomes ill, we will attempt to notify a parent or guardian promptly, and we will care for the student in our nurse’s station until a parent or guardian arrives. Students may not leave school grounds without a parent or other approved adult (as listed in the student’s emergency information). Please keep all contact number current for this reason. If the situation is a medical emergency, we will follow standard emergency procedures.

Do you have an open campus policy for lunch?

At this time we do not open our campus during meal times. To ensure everyone’s safety, students should remain on campus during the entirety of the school day unless excused for extra-curricular activities in the care of a district employee or with a parent. All visitors must report to the school office when entering or exiting the building.
