The purpose of the dress code is to help students develop standards for their personal appearance and to ensure their safety in the school environment. School attire must also support a safe academic environment free from distraction. If a student comes to school dressed inappropriately, parents/guardians will be contacted to bring a change of clothing for their child. It is the student’s and parent’s responsibility to see that these standards are followed.
1. Shoes: Shoes should be appropriate for running activities. No high heels, flip flops or skate shoes. Sandals must have a heel strap.
2. Make-up: No make-up, cosmetics, hair products or grooming aids are allowed to be brought to school.
3. Pants/shorts/skirts/dresses: Pants must be worn at the waist. Skirts and shorts must be at the end of the thumb or as close to the fingertips as possible. Leggings may be worn under appropriate pants, shorts or skirts/dresses. Appropriate pants are those that do not have excessive or large tears and free of distraction.
4. Shirts: No bare midriffs, spaghetti straps, halter tops, see-through shirts or inappropriate slogans or pictures. Inappropriate slogans and pictures are those that offend the reasonable child or person. Tank tops must have a 1 inch shoulder strap.
5. Hats: Hats are to be worn outside only, unless for religious reasons. Baseball caps must be worn with the visor facing forward. No do-rags or scarves that exemplify gang attire or are distracting to the learning environment.
6. No gang attire or wallets with chains.
7. No extreme hair-dos or spray painted hair color that is distracting to the learning environment.
Exceptions to the dress code may be made for spirit days, school fun days, or religious reasons, at the discretion of the principal. Parents will be notified when such an exception is made.
Please keep our dress code in mind any time you visit or volunteer at school.
We are models for our children!
The principal shall make the final determination regarding the appropriateness of a student’s attire.
