Student Dress Code
The educational experience is geared to help students prepare for the larger world and thus good grooming and proper attire should be em-phasized.
- Clothing and hairstyles worn at school during school hours must reflect cleanliness, neatness, and appropriateness for the activity in which the wearer is involved.
- Clothing of an overly revealing or distracting fashion is not accept-able. Tops that expose the midriff and/or cannot be tucked in are not acceptable. Low riding pants or jeans, which display underwear, as well as excessively revealing shorts or skirts is not permitted. Shorts and skirts must be below a student’s hand when the arm is at rest at the student’s side. Beachwear, cut off shirts and muscle shirts are not permitted. “Spaghetti Straps” are not allowed. Straps must be at least 1 inch wide.
- Clothing or hairstyles, which constitute a health or safety hazard, will not be worn. This would include loose or highly flammable clothing or unrestrained hairstyles in laboratories, around machin-ery, or in areas where a fire/safety hazard may exist.
- Clothing which cause excessive wear or damage to school or per-sonal property will not be worn. Such clothing includes metal taps or cleats on shoes, or metal studs on clothing.
- Clothing, insignia buttons, jewelry, or any other apparel which ad-vocates, advertises, or flaunts the use of tobacco or alcohol prod-ucts, drugs, weapons or contains obscene or questionable printing will not be permitted.
- Outdoor clothing – including hats, caps, visors, bandannas, and other forms of outdoor headgear, as well as coats, wind breakers, and parkas – will not be worn in school except for medical reasons or special “dress up days.” Students who must go outdoors may wear appropriate clothing when necessary. This provision may be waived by the classroom teacher involved when classrooms are too cold for comfort. Outerwear is to remain in lockers during the school day.
- Appropriate and safe footwear must be worn.
- Sunglasses will not be worn in school buildings unless required for certifiable medical reasons.
- No dog collars, chokers or chains are allowed to be worn either on the body or clothing. The Principal or Assistant Principals will no-tify parents or guardians for any violation of the regulations.
