Dress Code

Today I visited with all staff and students concerning the Intermediate dress code. My hope is that everyone is aware of our current dress code and that we do not have to address any violations. Any student violating dress code will have to leave the learning environment in order to address the issue. Since our focus is on learning, we want them in class. The dress code can be viewed in its entirety on our district and campus website, but here are a few common violations we want to avoid:

  • No tank tops, muscle shirts, racer-back tops/dresses, spaghetti strap tops/dresses, or strapless tops/dresses
  • Shorts, skirts, and dresses will not be shorter than the fingertips in a normal standing position – Bike shorts may be worn underneath in order to meet dress code as long as the outside garment in question is at a reasonable length
  • Girls may wear leggings as long as the shirt worn extends to at least fingertip length or below
  • Torn or ripped clothing is prohibited
  • Boys’ hair will not extend below the eyebrows, below the earlobes or below the top of a tee shirt
  • Unnatural color or color variation in hair is prohibited
  • Avoid geometric or unusual patterns shaved or cut in the hair
  • Spiked hair, Mohawks, and Faux hawks are prohibited
  • Male students cannot wear earrings or ear studs

The dress code is a guideline to acceptable attire and cannot be considered completely exclusive. Therefore, when other forms of dress are deemed inappropriate for reasons not listed, the administration will address the violation. In matters of opinion, the judgement of the administration will prevail.

Several students still have variations of color in their hair from the summer months. Please make sure that by Monday, August 28th, all color has been removed from the student’s hair.

Thank you in advance for your help in ensuring that our focus is on learning,

Jennifer Rock, Principal


Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

School is in full-swing now and we’ve had a fabulous start! If I have not had the opportunity to personally tell you “hello,” “welcome back,” “good morning,” or “have a great day,” then please allow me to do so at this time.

It is my privilege to serve as the Intermediate principal and work with such amazing staff and students. Let me assure you that our faculty/staff are committed to providing a this-century education and believe in ALL kids, ALL the time. This is commitment we do not take lightly. We strive to build learning experiences that equip students not only for the challenges of the classroom, but for the service of our community and the betterment our world.

I’m beginning my fourth year at White Oak and my twenty-fourth year in education. The excitement of a brand new year is a feeling that never grows old! We are excited about the learning opportunities that lay ahead and hope you enjoy and take the journey with us as we watch your children learn and grow.
