Dress Code

Dress Code

To minimize disturbances to the educational environment and to ensure a safe and secure learning environment, the following guidelines will be used by building principals to determine what action will be taken relative to student dress:

  1. Clothing, patches, buttons, jewelry, bags and any other personal items should be appropriate.  Any item containing or depicting obscenity, profanity, weapons, ads for illegal substances, or symbols found to be offensive and/or disruptive to the educational environment, including but not limited to the Confederate flag, swastika and/or gang affiliations, are not acceptable.

  2. Jewelry or body adornments considered to be disruptive or dangerous are not acceptable. 

  3. Revealing, sheer, strapless and/or low-cut clothing will not be allowed.  All shirts, tank tops, and/or blouses must cover undergarments and the entire torso.

  4. Hats, sunglasses, and hoods cannot be worn inside the building. Headphones and/or earbuds may not be worn in the building.

  5. Shorts, pants, skirts, leggings, torn or altered clothes should cover all undergarments and the buttock and private areas should not be visible while standing, bending, sitting or laying down.  

  6. Sagging pants riding below the waist that may expose skin or any garment worn under the pants are not allowed.

  7. Coats or lined jackets are to be left in lockers, not worn to class.  

  8. Book bags, backpacks, purses, laptop bags, and duffels are to be left in lockers except for use in gym class only.

  9. Excessive make-up and/or face paint, costumes,  or accessories that are distracting to instruction or unsafe are not allowed.    

  10. Any other item or appearance deemed inappropriate by administration.



When appropriate, students violating the dress code will be allowed to call home to request suitable clothing. Staff may also be able to offer temporary garments. Any student refusing to comply with the dress code may be suspended.
