Dress Code

The gist of the Student-Parent Handbooks provides more information regarding uniforms.

DRESS AND GROOMING

Research has indicated that student behavior is influenced by student dress and grooming. Consequently, student grooming is the proper concern of school administrators and teachers. In order to help insure proper and acceptable behavior on the part of the student, it becomes necessary to establish certain guidelines to aid parents and students in selecting the proper attire for school wear.

School staff recognizes that parents bear the primary responsibility for setting standards for their children's dress and grooming. However, because of health and safety factors, because of the influence of dress and grooming on students' attitude and behavior, and because of the need to prevent disruptive influences and preserve the academic environment of the school, student dress and grooming are proper concerns of teachers and administrators.

Regulations shall be established concerning the grooming of students for those classes where safety in the use of power machinery and sanitary conditions in food preparation is mandatory. Students enrolled in these classes shall be informed of those regulations and are expected to conform while in these classes. The campus administration, after consulting with the School Advisory Team and considering school/community needs, may have additional dress or grooming regulations that are campus specific. Final determination of acceptable dress and grooming rests with the principal or his/her designee and cannot be appealed. To aid students and their parents in making decisions about appropriate dress and grooming for schools, the following guidelines are established.

GUIDELINES

  1. In grades three through twelve, skirts and dresses must be no more than four inches above the top of the kneecap. There should not be a cut or slit in the clothing that extends beyond the four inch limit. These requirements also applies to school uniforms.

  2. Appropriate footwear must be worn; footwear which has toes reinforced with steel, hard plastics or similar materials is specifically prohibited.

  3. Hair must be neat and clean. Unconventional colored (except black, brown, red), multi-colored or spiked or Mohawk hair styles are not permitted.

  4. Headwear must not be worn in buildings.

  6. Indecent/inappropriate patches, writings, or drawings on clothing are prohibited.

  7. All pants are to be full length (Capri pants should be no less than four inches below the bottom of the kneecap) and worn at the waist (no "sagging" or "bagging"). Tight fitting pants (e.g., tights, Spandex, bicycle pants) are also prohibited. Cut-offs and intentionally frayed pants are also prohibited.

  8. Body piercing jewelry is prohibited except for rings, studs or other traditional jewelry worn in the ear. Tongue rings and tongue studs are not permitted.
