By Beverly Cockrell

CORRIGAN –With school just days – hours – away, Corrigan-Camden Assistant High School Principal Javier Perez wants all students to be aware of some changes to this year's dress code and lunch procedures. All students and parents are strongly advised to carefully review the following modifications to the Corrigan-Camden High School Student Handbook:

• "Facial hair may be worn, if neatly trimmed and at the discretion of the campus administrator. This policy will be re-evaluated at the end of each six weeks.

• Designs or shaving in of the eyebrows is considered GANG RELATED and will not be permitted.

• Hats, caps, picks, hoods, bandanas, sweatbands, or head coverings are not allowed. This applies to both boys and girls.

• Headphones are prohibited. Ear buds are the only source of approved headphones allowed.

• Inappropriate tattoos must be covered.

• All food has to come through the front office for lunches. No exceptions.

• Parents are the only visitors allowed during lunch. All other visitors have to be approved by campus administrators."

Obviously, these changes are in the best interest of all students, teachers and staff in order to promote a positive and safe learning environment. Should you have any questions or need more information about these important changes, please feel free to contact Javier Perez, Assistant Principal, at the high school.
