Posted in General Info

  1. Items that disrupt the educational mission shall not be allowed. Personal items such as clothing, paraphernalia, jewelry, backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles, etc., shall be free of writing, pictures, or any other insignias, which are crude, vulgar, profane, violent, or sexually suggestive.
  2. Items which bear advertising, promotions and likeness of tobacco, alcohol, or drugs or which are contrary to the educational mission, shall not be allowed.
  3. All students shall maintain their hair, mustaches, sideburns, and beards in a clean, well-groomed manner. Hair, which is so conspicuous, extreme, odd in color or style that it draws undue attention, disrupts, or tends to disrupt or interfere with the learning atmosphere at the school, shall not be allowed.
  4. All students shall wear clean clothing. Clothing, jewelry, accessories and piercings which are so conspicuous, extreme, or odd that they may draw undue attention, disrupt, or tend to disrupt, interfere with or pose a health or safety issue to the learning atmosphere at the school, shall not be allowed.
  5. Students shall not wear clothes that are mutilated, cut off, or immodest, e.g., short shorts, mini skirts, bare midriffs, halter-tops, spaghetti straps, tank shirts, or similar clothing. Clothing shall cover the midriff, underwear, backs, and cleavage at all times. Skirts, dresses and shorts must be at least mid-thigh length or longer when seated.
  6. Students shall comply with the laws that govern wearing military uniforms and insignias.
  7. Hats of any kind are not allowed within the building except as part of an approved activity, or for religious, or medical purposes.
  8. School officials may require students to wear certain types of clothing for health or safety reasons in connection with certain specialized activities.
  9. Gang-related clothing, colors, and paraphernalia shall not be allowed in schools or activities. School officials will determine what constitutes “gang” clothing, colors, and paraphernalia after consultation with law enforcement agencies as needed.
  10. Shoes shall be worn at all times to ensure personal safety and hygiene.
Students who are in violation of dress code will be required to change their clothing.  Students will be given the option of changing into clothing provided by the school or having a parent bring clothing.  Students will not attend class while they are dressed inappropriately. Refusal to change into clothing meeting the dress code standards will be considered insubordination.
