The district’s dress code is implemented (Section D page 7); therefore, students will be expected to follow the guidelines set forth by the district. Dress code standards are extended to extra-curricular activities held on the campus.
In an effort to promote a safe and positive school environment which is conducive to learning the following will be enforced:
• Trench-style coats are not permitted.
• Undergarments are not to be worn as outer garments (for example: plain white T-Shirt, muscle shirts), including pajama tops or bottoms.
• Pants and skirts must be worn at the waist, no loose waistbands or oversized pants are permitted.
• Skirts or dresses must be no more than 4 inches above the knee.
• Girl’s leggings are not permitted unless worn with an appropriate length dress/ skirt or long top that reaches fingertip length on the side. (Legging pants must be thick and not see through.)
• Tight fitting exercise pants are prohibited (e.g. bicycle pants/capris, yoga pants, or spandex tights)
• Pants hems should be worn at or below the ankles and not drag the ground.
• Tear-away pants will not be allowed.
• No clothing with inappropriate holes, rips or tears.
• No over-sized clothing, sagging, bagging, and dragging pants. Pant legs secured at the cuff with rubber bands or other devices will not be permitted. • Wallet chains, dog chains, dog collars, spike and leash type jewelry is prohibited.
• Inappropriate, indecent, suggestive, low cut, excessively tight, or distracting clothing (some examples: sexual slogans, gangs, tobacco, alcohol products drugs or violence) will not be allowed. This includes patches, drawings, or writing on clothing.
• Sleeveless shirts must be 3 fingers or more in width if worn by a female student. Sleeveless shirts are not allowed for boys.
• Girl’s chiffon blouses must be worn with a camisole or tank top that measures 3 fingers or more in width.
• Girls tops with exposed midriffs, backs, tank tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, strapless, tube top, camisole type or see though are not allowed. Jackets are not allowed to cover dress code violations.
• No Flip-Flops, slides or house shoes/slippers are permitted.
• Body piercing other than ears is not permitted. Ear rings, like all jewelry must be school appropriate, and earlobe spikes and/or spacers are prohibited. No other body piercing jewelry is allowed.
• Tattoos should be covered at all times.
• Body art in any form to include writing on skin, distracting or inappropriate stickers, and glitter is prohibited.
• Hair must be neat and clean. Unconventional colored, multi-colored or spiked, Mohawk or Fohawk hairstyles are not permitted. Hair must not cover the eyes. Insignias or initials, lines, designs etched in the eyebrows, hair or any part of the scalp are not permitted.
Because fads in dress and grooming are subject to sudden and sometimes radical change, a basic rule to remember is that student dress and grooming should not be suggestive, indecent, or unusual as to detract from the classroom environment. Changes in dress code, deemed appropriate and necessary by the school principal, may be announced, implemented and enforced during the course of the academic school year.
Students not complying with the dress code may be removed from the regular school setting until the parent is able to provide appropriate attire. We acknowledge that students form close association/friendships. When those associations/friendships are expressed outwardly by the wearing of specific colors or display ing of jewelry items that stand out from the general student body disciplinary action may ensue.
Final determination of acceptable dress code and grooming rests with the principal or his/her designee.
