Dress Code Policy
Students are expected to dress and groom themselves in an appropriate and safe manner while at school and at school functions. Students and parents should be aware of the importance of good grooming and its effect upon the learning environment. With this in mind, the following are considered inappropriate at school and should not be worn:
1) shorts, skirts, dresses, etc. that are above the fingertip length when arms are relaxed
2) any article of clothing with holes, tears, cuts, or slits above the fingertip length when arms are relaxed
3) shirts/blouses that have low-cut neckline; exposed cleavage; sleeveless garments not fitting snugly under arms; exposed bra straps; exposed shoulder/neck straps less than 3 fingers wide; baggy pants
4) see-through or halter tops (no midriff/waist to be exposed)
5) Any “revealing” or “suggestive” attire
6) any article of clothing that displays inappropriate language, gestures, symbols, or that promotes the use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco products, or anything deemed objectionable by administration
7) The use of images or symbols that may be divisive in nature such as Swastikas, Confederate Flag, Malcolm X, or anything deemed objectionable or divisive by administration
8) For safety and identification purposes, any type of headwear such as hood/hoodies, hats, bandanas, head wraps, headbands, or sunglasses in the school building.
9) any attire that would disrupt the normal operation of the school or distract from learning
No single dress code can address changing style or fads. The building Administrators shall make the final determination whether the student’s dress or garments meet the school’s requirements. School uniforms (i.e. cheerleaders, football, etc) and “special event” days approved by the principal are exempt for certain portions of the code.
