To decree a grooming guideline that would pertain to every conceivable attire would be cumbersome and never-ending. The above criteria, hopefully will serve as a positive guide to the students of Hubbard Exempted Village Schools. If any attire not listed above is questionable or extreme, the building administration will make a decision whether or not it is appropriate for the school.
