Dress Code for Parents/Visitors

We look forward to seeing our parents and families at so many of our wonderful events! This being said, please be reminded that HAFTR is an institution of Torah Study. We expect our students to conduct themselves and dress in an appropriate manner befitting the sanctity of our school. Likewise, parents on school grounds, including parking lots, or on school business (e.g. carpool, field trip chaperone, sports events, visits to the business office etc.) are expected to respect the goals and philosophy of the school. Parents are asked to cooperate by wearing proper attire when visiting the building. Men and women are expected to dress in a modest fashion. Men are required to wear a kippah. Women may not enter school grounds in pants, shorts or sleeveless tops. Women are to wear skirts and dresses of knee length.
