Dress Code

Student dress and appearance affect student attitudes and conduct. The purpose of the Dress Code is to prevent disruption of the learning environment and minimize the distraction of other students. It is also intended to protect the health and welfare of the student. Any student wearing clothing that is deemed inappropriate based on the listed criteria may be subject to disciplinary action.

  • Students are expected to wear clean, neat, and well-maintained clothing.

  • Clothing that has references to sex, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or gang activity may not be worn.

  • Clothing must completely cover all underwear and bra straps.

  • Strapless tops, low-cut tops, and clothing that show bare midriffs may NOT be worn.

  • Shorts, skirts, and dresses must reach to where the fingers meet the palm when standing with arms at sides.

  • Sagging pants are NOT to be worn

  • Pajamas and slippers are NOT to be worn

  • Students must wear shoes at all times.

  • The wearing of caps/hats indoors is at the discretion of the adult supervisor.

f a student’s attire or appearance causes a distraction to the learning environment or violates the dress code, they will be asked to change. Repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action. The administration reserves the right to decide the appropriateness of a student’s attire and to review and change the dress code to ensure the learning environment is maintained.
