School Policies

One of the critical responsibilities of the Millville School Board is to review and approve district policies. A few of Millville School District's policies of importance: Cell Phone/Electronic Device Policy, Dress Code Policy and Search and Seizure Policy, are linked to this page. To review Millville School District's policies in their entirety, please see the district secretary.

Dress Code

Millville School’s Dress Code Policy is in place in an effort to maintain an educational environment and to limit the distractions some types of dress can create. Please read through the dress code, particularly prior to shopping for school clothes, as the dress code is enforced throughout the school year. 
Quick reminders: Please note the allowed lengths of shorts, which is minimum of 4 inches above the top of the knee, and skirts/dresses, which is a minimum of 3 inches above the top of knee.  Also, tank tops with gaping armholes are not allowed for boys or girls. Lastly of note, leggings are not considered pants.

We appreciate your cooperation in our efforts in maintaining a scholarly environment at Millville School.
