The school reserves the right at all times to establish conditions of dress and conduct deemed appropriate and acceptable to a school environment.
- Dress and grooming will be clean, neat, and in keeping with health, sanitary, and safety requirements.
- Distracting extremes in apparel or make up are unacceptable. For example, costumes, face painting, and other apparel meant to gain attention are not appropriate in the school environment.
- Apparel shall cover the torso, hips, and upper legs and be opaque. Rompers, dresses and skirts must reach the fingertips while shorts must reach to the mid-palm.
- Undergarments should not be visible.
- Sagging pants or low-cut shirts that reveal the gluteal cleft, cleavage or ribs are prohibited.
- No apparel or accessories shall advocate drugs, alcohol, sex, violence, gangs or discrimination.
- Pajama tops/bottoms and slippers are prohibited.
- Caps, sunglasses, hats, hoods, bandanas and other head attire are not to be worn or carried in school because they prohibit facial recognition. Hats worn during the school day will be confiscated.
- No apparel, accessories, footwear, or hairstyle shall be worn that is capable of inflicting damage to the wearer, another person, or school property.
- Hats, coats, jackets, or other outer garments will be placed in lockers upon arrival at school. Coats are not allowed to be worn in school during the school day.
The administration shall be the final judge of appropriate and acceptable dress. Exceptions may be made for spirit days or other special occasions. Students in violation of the dress code will be referred to the office and administration will render decisions in individual cases. Any student in violation of the dress code will be required to immediately make the necessary adjustments to comply with the code.
