As a Knight of Alcorn Middle School, I vow to honor this pledge from this day forward.
AVOID THE RUSH
New Rule for School
Beginning with this school year (2013-2014), Section 44-29-180 of the South Carolina Code of Laws, and State Regulation 61-8, requires that all students entering 7th Grade receive one (1) dose of Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis). To assist parents of rising 7th Graders with this vaccination requirement ahead of the 2014-2015 school year, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is working with VaxCare Corporation and our school district to provide Tdap vaccines.
Alcorn Middle School
Academic Code of Dress-Year 2 Implementation (2014-15 School Year)
Beginning August 2014, all Alcorn Middle students are required to adhere to the Academic Code of Dress Policy.
The Academic Code of Dress is one facet that will be integral in transforming the perception of our school-which was developed one year ago by parents, students, staff and community members in an effort to raise academic achievement, improve the culture and climate in our school, and reduce distractions and peer pressure for students. The academic code of dress is as follows:
Bottoms: Khakis (Black, Tan or Navy Blue) colored pants, skirts, shorts, skorts and jumpers (appropriately sized)
Tops: 6th-8th Graders (Solid White, Powder Blue or Navy Blue oxford, polo shirts or turtle necks-long or short sleeve…any shirt combination is acceptable)
Shoes: Shoes must be close-toed and closed-back
Outerwear: No pullover hoodies are allowed. Outerwear should not conceal school attire.
Alcorn uniform attire can be purchased from local department stores. Alcorn also has a clothing closet with uniform items to assist those students in need.
If you have questions about the Academic Code of Dress, please call Alcorn Middle at 735-3439 and speak with our Parent/Community Coordinator, Mr. James Bryant. The school’s website will also be continuously updated with important information on the academic code of dress. Your continued support for the students of Alcorn Middle is greatly appreciated!
