Special "Professional Dress" Days
In an effort to build a sense of community, responsibility as well as career and personal preparedness, there will be days that we ask our students to "dress up" in professional attire for the school day. We will notify the students of these special occasions through email, REMIND messaging, letters, and/or telephone School Messenger.
It is our goal to have our students represent themselves, their families, the Sunset P-TECH, and the entire Sunset High School Community in a respectful and appropriate manner at all times. The incorporation of the uniform guidelines is just one way in which we want our students to model this expectation. If you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact our P-TECH Administrator, Mr. Ralph Spencer, Jr. by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, parents and students, for working with us.
