Do you enforce a dress code at Madison-Grant?

We expect students at Madison-Grant to dress appropriately at all times. Students come to school to learn, and their choice of dress should reflect that. We do not allow any expression of fashion (dress, accessory, or hairstyle) that disrupts the educational process or presents a safety risk. Students should choose clothing that:

  • Does not advertise anything prohibited to minors (including drugs, alcohol, or tobacco)
  • Does not use any obscene or profane pictures and/or language
  • Is appropriate for the situation (for example, swimming suits and athletics uniforms are only appropriate at the pool or during an athletic event)
  • Is appropriate for the weather
  • Is modest and comfortable
  • Covers all undergarments 
  • Includes shoes

We also expect our students to keep coats, hats, bags, and purses inside their lockers throughout the school day. We may require students to wear uniforms representing Madison-Grant during extra-curricular or public events.

May my high schooler drive to and from school?

Driving to school is a privilege, which we can revoke at any time. We encourage students for whom we are able to provide the opportunity to ride school transportation to do so. Students and their parents assume full responsibility for any transportation to and from school not officially provided by the school. Remember, students may not drive any time during school hours, including class breaks and lunch periods, without specific written permission from the principal. Students planning on driving to school must:

  • Complete a Student Vehicle Form 5515 Fl (available in the office) and provide proof of a valid driver’s license, current insurance, and registration
  • Abide by our posted parking lot speed limit of 10 mph
  • Obtain a permit from the school office

Does MG permit students to have cell phones on campus?

We do allow cell phones and other wireless communication devices (WCD) on campus and at school-related functions. However, we require that all such devices be powered completely off (not just placed into vibrate or silent mode) and stored out of sight during school hours and in school vehicles. If you would like more information regarding our (WCDs) policy, please refer to our student handbook.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. You are welcome to visit anytime. All visitors must report to the office upon entering the school, sign in, and obtain a pass. Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep 
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
