Dress Code

Students will wear appropriate school attire, including footwear. Specific examples of inappropriate school attire are, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Displays of obscene, sexual, gang, drug, alcohol-related, harassing, and/or discriminatory messages on clothing, body, or belongings.

  2. Clothing that exposes any of the following body areas: midriff, chest, cleavage, or upper thigh (both shorts and skirts shall be longer than a student's fingertip when arms are placed casually at the student's side).

  3. Any article of clothing that is transparent  - or has rips, tears, or holes - that allows bare skin to be shown in the body areas listed above.

  4. Exposed undergarments, such as underpants and bra straps.

  5. Any item of clothing that is strapless (including tube tops) or "off-shoulder" (including single-shoulder-strap tops) unless covered with an appropriate outer garment (such as a cardigan).

If a student is wearing apparel that does not follow the dress code, the classroom teacher or school employee will ask the student to change clothes, or send the student to the office to call home for a change of clothes. The classroom teacher or school employee is the final word on dress code, and any defiance of a teacher's reasonable request to change clothes will be referred to the administration for discipline.
