Tax Exempt Weekend and Code of Conduct Changes

This weekend is the 2018 Sales Tax Holiday in Alabama. Many items such as clothing, school supplies and even books are exempt from sales tax this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Also, we would like to call your attention to a recent change in our Code of Conduct which may impact your purchases this weekend. The rule for the length of shorts, skirts and dresses has changed. Shorts, skirts and dresses can now be up to 3” above the knee. In addition, if a student wears leggings, the clothing item over the leggings can now be 3” above the knee. These changes were made after much thought, input, and study of surrounding systems’ rules.

Thank's and have a great weekend!
