Orville H. Platt High School

Dress Code

The Meriden Board of Education takes pride in the appearance of our students.

Students are expected to wear attire that is not disruptive to the education process and is not dangerous or unsafe. Students should always come to school neat and clean. The dress of a student reflects the level of respect for oneself, respect for one's peers and respect for one's school. To that end, the Board of Education has updated its dress code effective April 2012.
