In collaboration with the community, staff, and faculty, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Early College determined that Dr. Martin Luther King Early College have a distinctive middle school and high school dress code:
COVID 19 Dress Code:
MASKS-ALL STUDENTS are expected to arrive at school wearing a mask during the entire school day. Students will be given “mask breaks” throughout the day, their teachers will lead them in what this break will look like safely. Students may remove their mask during lunchtimes as they are socially distanced from other students *guidelines subject to change
BACKPACKS- ALL STUDENTS are expected to carry all of their belongings in a CLEAR backpack. This policy was created not only as an additional safety measure, but also this year because students will not have access to lockers. Clear backpacks can be found on Amazon and other locations for as low as $10. Students may keep smaller, personal belongings (feminine products, money, etc.) in a smaller, opaque holder within the clear backpack.
The following uniform agreement for free dress has been put in place for high school students only. If the following requirements below are not met, the traditional DMLK uniform policy will be enforced.
*DMLK polo shirts and hoodies are sold through the school Treasurer.
• NO Flip flops, house shoes, or slippers
**BLANKETS are not allowed and are not considered a part of the dress code
