School is a place where learning takes place. Dress can positively or negatively affect a student’s attention to the educational process. Dress can also reflect the pride a student takes in her/himself and her/his school. Students are required to adhere to the following dress code, while in school and when attending school functions. If a student violates the dress code at school, parents may be called to bring in more appropriate clothing for their child, or the child may have to wear something from the lost and found to remedy the situation. If the child violates the dress code at a school function, s/he may be required to leave.
We ask that all adults, at the school, during the day or for school functions, follow this code as well, in order to provide consistency and to set a good example for the students.
Shirts must be long enough to touch the top of the pants when the person is involved in normal school movements. Please remember that students may raise their hands or kneel on the floor for projects. Please be sure midriffs or bottoms will not be exposed in these positions either.
No spaghetti strap shirts; no muscle shirts. Straps must be at least 3 fingers wide.
Shorts/skirts/dresses must be at least mid-thigh length. When a student’s arm is down at his/her side the fingertips must reach the bottom of the clothing.
Clothing must not be revealing.
No pajamas may be worn to school.
Ripped jeans, or other ripped articles of clothing, are not allowed.
Clothing or accessories with improper or objectionable pictures, sayings, gestures, or language, or which promote substances prohibited by Board Policy or state law, must not be worn.
Shoes must be worn at all times. No flip-flops or heelies are allowed. Crocs and clogs may only be worn, if straps are used.
Sunglasses, hats, and gloves are for outdoor use, and are not to be worn indoors.
Students wearing leggings or other tight-fitting pants (such as yoga pants) must wear a shirt or top that provides sufficient coverage of their backside. Leggings must be opaque and not see-through.
