Hygiene & Haircut Guidelines
Our goal at Cardigan is to find the appropriate balance between supporting students and their individual identities, while defining, instilling, and practicing important life skills and habits.
If there is a concern about a student’s personal health and well-being, a member of the Health Center team, Student Life Office, or other administrator will contact parents to construct an informed and team-based approach. Our health center staff are available for discussion and consultation, personal hygiene products are available in the school store, and there are periodic opportunities for students to get haircuts on campus.
Hair should be kept clean and neat. Cutting or coloring one’s own hair or another student’s hair is unacceptable. Facial hair is not allowed. Barbers are available on campus regularly, and appointments can be made.
