Dress Code

Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels)

The district’s dress code teaches grooming and hygiene, prevents disruption, and minimizes safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:

  • Any extreme in clothing, hair (ex. Mohawks or Faux Hawks), hair color, cosmetics, jewelry, or appearances in the opinion of the administration, that may disrupt the normal operations of the school, will not be permitted.
  • Pants: Holes (skin showing) may not be in pants or jeans above the knee, unless patched. In addition no wording across the buttocks is allowed. Patches must not be in inappropriate places (areas traditionally covered by modest undergarments).
  • Students should wear their hair in a clean, neat, and well-groomed fashion. Boys are prohibited from wearing their hair in such a way that it extends to the shoulder or past the eyebrows or earlobes.
  • Students can wear earrings or studs in the ears only (gauges or any similar devices or prohibited).  Students will not be allowed to wear earrings or studs on any body part other than the ear.
  • Students must wear shoes or boots at all times; no house shoes.

To be considered appropriate shorts they should be in good taste, loose fitting and hemmed, and be no shorter than the tips of the fingers as the student stands naturally.

Spandex type shorts or pants are not allowed. Pants, shorts, or skirts that are worn to sag below the tops of undergarments are not appropriate.
  • Clothing should be long enough to cover the body adequately and conform to a standard of modesty when the student is sitting, standing, stooping, or bending. Midriffs may not be exposed at any time.

If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
