School board OKs dress code changes

By By Cliff Knight, Hartselle Enquirer
Hartselle School Board approved a less restrictive dress code at its regular meeting Monday night but indicated it will consider a tighter attendance policy at its next meeting in April.
Students are now allowed to wear jewelry on any part of the ear and a ban on the use of camouflaged clothing has been lifted.
The board approved two other amended policies. One sets June 1 as the last day prior to a new school year to accept applications for student transfers and/or withdrawals. The new deadline is May 1. The other changed policy removes the distinction between out-of-county and out-of-district students with respect to the school system’s tuition policy.
First reading approval was granted to three proposed policy changes. They pertain to school lunch service, worthless checks and student absences and excuses.
The current absences policy permits students to miss 10 non-excused days of school per semester without penalty as long as missed work is caught up. The proposed policy would limit the number of non-excused days to five per semester without a doctor-written excuse or approval of the principal or superintendent.
The board acted on other matters as follows:
