Dress Code

Dress Code: (from District policy)

Clothing and grooming must be such that it does not constitute a health or safety hazard.  All students are expected to be groomed and dressed appropriately with respect to the following criteria:

Shirts/Blouses/Tops

  • Midriff must be covered in the front and back.
  • No spaghetti straps, halter tops, strapless shirts without an approved shirt underneath.
  • Clothing and/or accessories that promote violence, gang activity, drugs, offensive language or alcohol are inappropriate.
  • No low cut, transparent, see-through or muscle shirts can be worn, and cleavage cannot be exposed.

Pants/Shorts/Skirts/Dresses

  • Pants/shorts/skirts are to be worn at the waistline and should cover undergarments at all times.
  • Skirts/shorts must not be shorter than 6 inches above the natural bend in the back of the leg or mid thigh.

Pajamas/Lounge Wear

  • Clothing that is considered pajamas or bedtime/lounge wear and/or house shoes are prohibited unless it’s an approved incentive day.

Accessories

  • Accessories such as bandanas, dew rags, gloves or hats cannot be worn in the building.
  • While hoodies are acceptable attire, hoods should not be worn in the building due to security reasons.
  • Footwear must be worn at all times.
  • No spiked or studded clothing and/or jewelry allowed that would compromise the safety of student(s).
  • No heavy chains or multi chains
  • Blankets should not be brought to school.
  • Electronic accessories should not be worn or visible during the school day.

   There may be changes, interpretations or exceptions to the dress code as deemed necessary by administrators. These changes or interpretations will be dependent upon safety conditions or situations that develop. Any student deemed in violation of the dress code will be required to find clothing that meets the dress code. As a last resort, the school may provide an appropriate clothing item in exchange for the original clothing (if the school has something available). The student can redeem their original clothing item when they return the school’s appropriate clothes at the end of the school day. Failure to comply after a student has been asked to make corrections will result in disciplinary action.

   If a student violates the dress code, a contract can be used as an agreement. Failure to uphold the agreement will result in an appropriate consequence.
