The dress code is to encourage our students to be modest, which is important for living the virtue of chastity and for protecting the human dignity of our students. We welcome guests from other schools, but it is the responsibility of the Sacred Heart student who invites the guest to make sure that his or her date adheres to this policy. Students not complying with the dress code will be asked to leave or make the proper modifications to their attire before being admitted to the dance. If on the next dance occasion a student once again fails to adhere to the dress code policy, he or she will not be allowed to attend the dance.
