BGIS Parents,

We hope you are enjoying the summer months with your families. We realize how valuable this time truly is. With the tax free shopping season approaching quickly, we wanted to share a few reminders as thoughts begin to transition to those of school preparation.

Please see our school Facebook page for directions on Planet Fundraiser’s easy way to help give back to BGIS and Hoover City Schools. There is a list of participating merchants who are giving back even more than normal during this shopping weekend.

We also want to ensure that all students are in keeping with district wide dress code expectations. There are a few changes, so while making purchases for the upcoming school year, please be mindful of the following:

  • Any clothing, appearance, or personal hygiene and grooming practices that draw an inordinate amount of attention to the individual student are considered inappropriate for school. The dress and/or grooming style of any student must not interfere with the educational process of any Hoover City School
  • Clothing should not reveal the body in an inappropriate manner. Clothing which is too tight, too short, too revealing, exposes the bust line, sides, back, or midriff area is prohibited.
  • Prohibited items of clothing include, but are not limited to, off the shoulder tops, tank tops, spaghetti straps, halters, sheer or see-through clothing.
  • Legging/Jeggings/Tights are not considered pants and must be worn with a long dress or skirt. 
  • Excessively large clothing is not allowed. 
  • Pants and skirts with holes above the knee are not allowed.
  • Shorts, dresses, and skirts must be hemmed and not shorter than mid-thigh when student is seated. Shorts that are torn, in disrepair, or spandex are not allowed. Note that gym type shorts that meet district length are now allowed.
  • Students are not to wear jewelry, ornaments, or accessories which distract from the learning environment or may pose a safety risk/hazard (ex. excessively large, noisy jewelry and/or belts). No decorative dental appliances (whether permanent or temporary) or distracting contact lenses will be allowed.
  • T-shirts or any other type clothing or personal item bearing a reference to alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, drugs, drug-related slogans, and/or any other wording, drawing, pictures, etc., which in any way can be interpreted as being "off-color," suggestive, obscene, or offensive, or relating to, death, the occult, etc. are not permitted.

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration of above reminders. We look forward to seeing you at our onsite registration event Tuesday, August 1st between 9AM-12Noon.

 

Your BGIS Administrative Team
