Updated dress code information
Information regarding the update to the Student Dress Code for Sebastian River Middle School, Sebastian River High School and Vero Beach High School
The Student Code of Conduct Committee consisting of students, parents, teachers, staff, and community members met several times throughout last school year. These meetings were publicized and were open to the public.
There are two significant changes to the dress code for Sebastian River Middle School, Sebastian River High School, and Vero Beach High School. First, clothing and accessories will contain no words or graphics, however, shirts may contain print and a logo no larger than 2”x 2”. Secondly, apparel will contain no sheer, net, mesh, or sleepwear items. No leggings, jeggings, or pajamas are allowed.
We understand the desire for individuality among our students. We believe that with the updates to the dress code, students will still be able to express themselves appropriately and enjoy the clothing they wear, while respecting themselves and others.
Please see the Student Dress Code for the School District of Indian River County below.
