Dress Code

STUDENT DRESS

 

Personal appearance should not disrupt the educational process, violate federal, state, or local health or obscenity laws, or affect the welfare and safety of the student or his/her classmates.

 

  • Clothing worn to school should be comfortable and appropriate for school activities. In general, any type of dress that is distracting or would cause embarrassment to faculty or students will not be allowed. While we encourage self-expression, clothing should not distract from the learning process.
  • Clothing must cover and conceal undergarments and the midriff. Clothing must be tailored (this means finished seams, hems, and appropriate fit).
  • Strapless tops, spaghetti straps, and halter tops will not be allowed.
  • Shorts may be worn, but must come to the finger tips with the arms straight down by the side of the leg. No short shorts will be allowed. No sagging pants. Pants must be kept up at the waist. Sleeveless shirts that expose the skin and/or undergarments will not be permitted. Jeans with holes must abide by the shorts policy.
  • Clothing which promotes alcohol, drugs, tobacco, gang affiliation, nudity or profanity is not allowed.
  • No hats, caps, visors, headbands, bandanas, sunglasses or other head coverings are to be worn in the building. These items are to be left in the locker or vehicle.
  • No chains, spiked bands, bracelets, belts or other items deemed inappropriate by the administration may be worn. This list is not all inclusive.
  • Leggings are not considered pants and are not appropriate unless worn under a skirt or dress that meets the skirt and short length requirement.

Any student who is dressed inappropriately or fails to follow the guidelines will be given the opportunity to change clothes. If the student refuses, a parent will be notified and the student will be sent home. The student may return to school when dressed appropriately. The student will be counted absent for any class time missed.
