Dress Code

Dress Code.JPG

The dress code is established to promote a positive, psychologically safe and wholesome learning environment. Apparel (including clothing, jewelry and accessories) that disrupts or distracts from the learning environment is not permitted. Consequences for violation of the dress code can be found in the Discipline Guidelines. While administrators may exercise discretion in determining the appropriateness of dress, the following guidelines might be helpful:

 

  • Apparel related to gangs is forbidden including gang colors (for students identified as associating with gang members).
  • Apparel that depicts illegal substances (e.g., drugs, alcohol, and tobacco), pornography, profanity, violence, illegal behavior, or which is demeaning to any race, gender or creed is forbidden.
  • No revealing apparel is permitted. No cleavage, midriff, bare chest or buttocks may be showing.
  • Undergarments must be covered and not visible. Attire that is see-through, strapless or backless may not be worn to school.
  • Shorts and skirts must extend beyond the end of the fingertips when the student is standing with arm straight down at the sides.
  • No pajamas (except on school-approved dress-up days).
  • No sagging. One's waistband must be above one's derriere at all times.
  • Chains hanging from pockets, belt loops or the waist are not permitted.
  • Teachers may require students to remove hats, hood or sunglasses in the classroom.

Personal electronic devices (e.g., cell phones, MP3 players etc.) can be a major disruption to learning. While students are free to use these devices before school, after school, during passing periods and during lunch, all PEDs must be turned off and stored out of sight during class time. Violation of this policy will result in the confiscation of the PED and consequences according to the Discipline Guidelines. If a student refuses to surrender a PED to a requesting staff member, the student will receive additional consequences for defiance which may include detention, IHS, Saturday School or suspension.
