Aug. 15, 2007 – Parents, guardians, students are advised of the requirement to comply with the established regulations for the school's dress code and that failure to do so will result in the student being sent home until the school attire meets the mandated requirements, according to a press release from Principal Kurt Vialet of the St. Croix Educational Complex High School. The dress code policy for students is as follows:

Effective Aug. 27, all students enrolled in physical education classes are required to dress in the PE uniform. Uniforms can be purchased at the school. The cost of the uniform is $25 per pair (shirt – $12 and shorts $13).
The use of electronic devices, which includes cell phones, I-pods and beepers are not allowed on campus. "The dress code will be strictly enforced. Violations of the policy in part, or in its entirety will result in dismissal from classes until the appropriate adjustment is made. It is recognized that not all situations and conditions can possibly be covered by a dress code. Therefore, the administration reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of any item of school dress," said Vialet.
