School Dress Code

APPROPRIATE DRESS

Appropriate dress is defined as attire that is free of symbols of hate, gang membership, or images that portray violence, death, abuse, cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, racial slurs, obscene words, and political or sexual statements explicitly or by implication.

Clothing that is revealing and shows an excessive amount of skin such as muscle shirts, low-scooped necklines, tops with spaghetti straps, bare midriffs and open backs are unacceptable. Shirts must be “tuckable” and not excessively tight. Shorts and skirts must be a reasonable length. Undergarments should not be visible.

In keeping with the professional tone of the school, hats must be removed immediately after entering the building.

If students come to school dressed inappropriately, they will be directed to change and if appropriate clothing is not available at school, parents will be contacted to bring suitable attire. Staff decisions as to whether clothing is appropriate are final. Repeated non-compliance with dress code will be treated as persistent opposition to authority with corresponding consequences.
