Halloween Costumes

MPH students may come in costume, provided that the costume is in good taste (i.e., suitable for viewing by children as young as four). No weapons, real or simulated, are permitted as part of a costume, nor are other items that would not be permitted in school ordinarily (for example, liquor bottles). The dress code is eased for the day for students genuinely in costume. Scary, provocative or gory costumes are not allowed. Costumes perpetuating racial, cultural, and gender stereotypes are not allowed.

First Dress Down Day: Wednesday, September 18

The third Wednesday of each month is a designated Dress Down Day. On these days, students are allowed to wear “out of dress code” attire as long as it is still neat, clean and appropriate.

For Dress Down Days, students may wear:
• Blue or washed out jeans
• Athletic clothing
• Hats (except in classrooms)

Students may still NOT wear:
• Clothing with inappropriate graphics
• Ripped, torn, or soiled clothing

Apply to the Student Faculty Judicial Committee before September 25

The Student Faculty Judicial Committee (SFJC) consists of eight US students who are elected by the faculty and eight faculty members elected by the students. Three students and three faculty members sit on each hearing at a time. The Dean of Students calls the SFJC in discipline cases that involve a violation of a major school rule. The SFJC meets to review evidence, to interview the student who broke a rule, to discuss appropriate sanctions and/or measures, and provides a recommendation for action to the Head of School.

An appointment to the SFJC runs for one year. It is expected that you will be available for most meetings, maintain absolute confidentiality, and set an example of sound leadership to all students at all times. Please be mindful when applying that these meetings usually occur after school and with little warning, and may interfere with other commitments.

To be eligible for SFJC, you must be in 11th or 12th grade, have attended MPH for at least five quarters, and not appeared in front of the SFJC at any time.

To apply to be a member of the SFJC, you must provide the following personal information and submit an essay on leadership. See Application
