Greetings Fellow Titans –

The whole staff at Northview has been busy getting ready for the beginning of the 2010-11 school year. The building has been cleaned and polished to a beautiful shine and teachers are busy preparing classrooms for the students that will drop in over the next few days. As a reminder:

Freshman Orientation
Tuesday, August 17th      7 – 9 p.m. 

Information Day
Wednesday, August 18th
9 – 10 a.m.        Seniors only
10 – 11 a.m.      Juniors
11 – 1 p.m.        Sophomores and late arrivals

An important part of enrollment for ALL students is the Affidavit of Residence that was mailed home a few weeks ago. This form is required for all students and must be returned to the front office before classes begin on August 23rd. Extra copies will be available and notaries will be present to complete the affidavit. Parents must fill out and sign the form, providing any necessary documentation (9th graders and new students). Students who do not return the form will be withdrawn on August 27th. This is required documentation! 

I’m looking forward to a smooth opening and the completion of this mandatory task will aid us immensely. Please feel free to contact the front office if there are any questions or concerns.

Ever Upward and Onward!

Pamela Spalla
Principal
Northview High School

Dress code reminder

The following policy was developed by the Student Council so that our students will be in compliance with the rules of the Fulton County School system:

  1. Students must demonstrate common sense and good judgment when selecting school clothing: apparel that is appropriate for social settings may not be appropriate for school.
  2. Clothing that reveals the navel is unacceptable.  This includes tops that are short and pants/skirts that are cut low.  Shirts should touch the top of the pants when standing still.
  3. Shorts/skirts/dresses must be finger-length/mid-thigh.
  4. All tops must have shoulders or sleeves. i.e. no spaghetti straps, tank tops, halters, tube tops or backless apparel.
  5. Pajamas, costumes, or other exceptions are permitted only on designated days.
  6. No underwear is to be visible.  No jeans, pants, shorts, or tops are to be worn that reveal undergarments.  This applies to boys and girls.
  7. Skirts, shorts, and dresses are to be in good taste.  Students should be able to sit, stand, and walk without revealing underwear above or below the garment.
  8. T-shirts must be in good taste (no suggestive wording, pictures, graphics, or advertisements for alcoholic beverages, tobacco, or other controlled substances).
  9. Shoes or other appropriate footwear are to be worn at all times.
  10. Clothing that is intended for use in PE classes or for athletic practice are not to be worn as school attire.  This includes tank tops for boys and spandex items.
  11. Students are not allowed to wear or display bandanas on school property.
  12. Hats, headbands, grooming aides, etc., are not to be worn in the building from the time the building opens until dismissal.  These items are subject to confiscation.

The dress code policy is interpreted by the administration of Northview High School to mean that no clothing is acceptable that displays vulgar or obscene messages  or designs, logos referring to alcohol, tobacco, or other controlled substances, is distracting, or is inappropriately revealing.

Students and parents are expected to honor the dress code so that valuable school time is not spent examining student attire to determine appropriateness. Students in violation of the dress code will be asked to call home for an appropriate change of clothing. Students may not return to class until a parent has brought appropriate clothing to school for the child. Disciplinary consequences will be assigned to students having repeat dress code infractions.
