What is the dress code for Wilmington Middle School?

We expect our students to dress in a way that shows respect for themselves, for others, and for their school. Students may not wear any clothing that distracts from the learning experience. Specifically, we do not allow the following:

  • Shirts that expose the midriff or that are cut below the collarbone
  • Shorts that do not pass the “fingertip-length” test
  • Clothing that promotes drug- or gang-related activity
  • Open-toed shoes
  • Spikes, chains, or similar jewelry
  • Nose rings or other body piercings (other than in the ear)

We reserve the right to determine whether a student’s clothing is appropriate for school. For more details regarding our dress code, please review the student handbook.

What will happen if my child becomes ill while at school?

If a student becomes ill, we will attempt to notify a parent or guardian promptly, and we will care for the student in our nurse’s station until a parent or guardian arrives. Students may not leave school grounds without either a parent or another approved adult (as listed on the student’s information form). If the situation is a medical emergency, we will follow standard emergency procedures.

May I visit my child at school?

We encourage parents to visit our school and support their child’s education. However, to ensure the safety of all our students we have instituted the following policy:

We require visitors at each of our schools to provide a driver’s license upon entry. This identification is scanned and cross-referenced with online databases highlighting individuals who have been convicted as sex offenders or with other crimes against children.

Is my child eligible to ride the bus?

Wilmington CUSD provides transportation services to students who live too far from school to walk. If you would like more information about bus routes or times, please visit our district website. The school bus is an extension of our school; all school rules and applicable consequences apply.
