OUT OF SCHOOL DRESS CODE

The following are guidelines for after school hours. At all times a student’s dress, which may reflect personal style, must be tznius according to Halacha. As such, our students will reflect the inner dignity and refinement of a Bas Chabad and a student of Cheder Chabad.

  1. Elbows and knees should be covered at all times.
  2. An appropriate neckline, one in which the collar bone, sides and back of the neck are properly covered.
  3. Skirts must cover the knees at all times.
  4. The entire leg should be covered with appropriate leg wear. Ankle socks or leggings with socks are inappropriate and may not be worn.
  5. Form fitting or tight clothing are not appropriate.  
  6.  Slits may not be worn.
  7. No attention-drawing or improper graphics on the shirt or bold lettering across the front of shirt should be worn.
  8. Hair should be refined and pulled together.

If it comes to our attention that a student is not conforming to these standards outside of school, Parents will be asked to meet with the principal to discuss and rectify the situation.

 

TECHNOLOGY POLICY

  • Electronic Devices

Cameras, electronic games, music players, MP3/4 players, flash drives etc. may not be brought on the bus or to school.  Any of the above devices brought to Cheder will be confiscated. They will not be returned until the end of the semester and will need to be picked up by a parent.        

  • Cell Phones

Students may not own a cell phone. They may NOT bring a cell phone to Cheder regardless if it’s a smart phone or not.

Bringing any type of cell phone to school is grounds for suspension.

  • I-pods and I-pads

Ipods and Ipads are fully accessible to internet. Giving your daughter such a device is the equivalent of having full internet capabilities in a private room. As such, Cheder deems it inappropriate and unnecessary for a student to own an I-pod, I-pad or smartphone.

If your daughter already owns an Ipod or Ipad it is imperative that a proper filter is installed and there is parental supervision involved.

A cell phone, ipod or ipad  may never be brought to school or even on the bus. If a device was brought on the bus or school, it will NOT be returned to your daughter.
