Hanes Magnet School will continue to have a Standard Mode of Dress for all students. Students are expected to be in Standard Mode of Dress from the time they enter the building in the morning through the time they exit the building in the afternoon (students in PE should change back into SMOD before going home).


A dress code check will be performed daily after the morning announcements.  Students who change out of dress code for class presentations will remain in their classroom or on their hallway.  They should change back into SMOD following the presentation activity.
