DRESS AND APPEARANCE
A student’s clothing and hygiene say a lot about how much a student respects
him/herself and the school, so students must consider the following
information when making clothing choices. Students are expected to be clean,
well groomed, and dressed in a modest manner that does not distract them
or others from learning. If a student’s appearance or clothing calls undue
attention to him/herself, he/she may be sent to the office for a change of
clothing. Because all students represent the school, they must be
appropriately dressed at all school-related events.
In general, appropriate dress means that clothing is clean, safe, decent, and
does not interfere with the educational process as outlined below:
1. Pants, shorts and skirts must be worn at the appropriate waist level.
Pants should not drag on the floor or have unnecessary attachments.
2. Shorts, skirts, dresses, and skorts must not be more than four inches
above the knee.
3. Shoes must be worn at all times.
4. Undergarments may not be seen at any time.
5. All shirts must have sleeves, should have enough neckline to cover
cleavage, and cover the entire torso area at all times. All shirts must be
long enough to be able to be tucked in.
Items of attire which are unacceptable include, but are not limited to, the
following items: tank tops; hats; hoods worn on the head; bandanas;
sweatbands; sunglasses; chains of any kind; heavy metal jewelry; revealing
clothing; pants or shorts with words or pictures on the back side; pajama
pants or other clothing designed for sleepwear; any articles of clothing which
promote use of alcoholic beverages, drugs, gang activity, sexually suggestive
language, violence or inappropriate language; clothing with indecent/excessive
rips, tears or holes; trench coats. Hats, coats, and book bags are to remain
in student lockers during class time
