    Dress Code

    Duluth High School works to create a safe, positive and welcoming learning environment where all students can thrive. Our mission is to help students grow into the most well rounded and prepared version of themselves for the workforce. With this mission in mind, we would ask that in the same way that you would respect the need to adjust your attire accordingly to attend a place of worship or employment that you would be considerate of the fact that school is also a destination with a purpose that is worthy of presenting ourselves with a certain amount of decorum. This dress code was developed through collaboration with student, faculty and community partners. Please help us by adhering to it and be prepared to change any articles of clothing that do not align with these standards. Refusal to change or repeated violations may result in disciplinary consequences.
