Please review the new student dress policy for 2016-2017 school year at www. pcssd.org. MMS will adhere to this policy. All students are expected to be dressed and groomed in a manner which presents a respectable image in keeping with current styles and good taste. We understand that dress is a matter of personal expression and style; however, we must advise that student dress maintain appropriateness at all times to limit distractions from learning and to insure a high quality academic environment.
The following table provides examples that will assist you in making appropriate choices when buying clothing for your child this school year. Examples of noncompliant clothing and/or modes of dress will result in a student dress policy violation:
Polo style shirts, T-shirts, Button downs, Blouses that cover the shoulders, cleavage, back, midriff.

Head gear of any type is not allowed in the building or during any school function without the expressed permission of the administration.
Any clothing, jewelry, accessory or hairstyle that the administration deems inappropriate in an educational setting is prohibited. This list is not exhaustive and only serves as a guide. The administration of Maumelle Middle School reserves the authority to interpret the PCSSD student dress code policy. "A student will not practice a mode of dress that disrupts the educational process, calls attention to the individual, violates federal, state or local law, or affects the welfare and safety of students and teachers. Furthermore, students are prohibited from obscene, lewd or vulgar comments or designs and wearing clothing directed toward or intended to threaten, intimidate or demean an individual or group of individuals as well as items advertising alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs."
Our EAST Students created dress code visual boards to help MMS students stay in dress code while dressing for success. "The project is about the wrong and right things to wear according to our dress code. We want to help people follow the rules so that they don't suffer the consequences." - Kaya Porter, Riley Naqvi, Isaiah Lewis and Aida Santiago.
