Dress Code 18-19

Attention parents and guardians of Milton High School students: Please review the dress code policy as there have been a few minor changes made for this school year. The dress code policy can also be found on the district Facebook page. Please also note that if the dress code is broken, an opportunity will be given to change to appropriate attire.  If a change of clothes is not already with the student, a parent will be contacted to bring the appropriate clothing to school.
