2022-2023 Dress Code

The Sweetwater Board of Education believes that good taste and normal standards should be maintained in dress and grooming. We are asking for your cooperation with the following dress requirements. Students violating the dress code are subject to disciplinary action.


  • No apparel, dress, accessories, or grooming which may become potentially disruptive.

  • No article of clothing, apparel, jewelry or tattoos may be worn which implies or otherwise mentions alcohol, tobacco, drugs, provocative language, gangs, offensive language, harming of others, hatred, or any prejudice.

Pants with holes may be worn as long as the holes are no higher than a dollar bill above the knee, holes are below the knee, or leggings/shorts are worn underneath. No skin should be visible through holes above a dollar bill length above the knee.


  • Jewelry must be of the appropriate size. Earrings and/or studs may be worn in the ears or nose only. Studs or ornaments of any kind worn in any other pierced area are not authorized. Band-aids do not excuse the rule; however, clear spacers are acceptable.

The items specifically cited in this dress code should not be viewed as “all inclusive.” The administration may make decisions about items that are disruptive to the educational process and deal with those items accordingly.


  • Students found to be violating the dress code will be given a citation and given the opportunity to address the violation. If necessary parents/guardians will be contacted to bring alternate clothing. Should a parent/guardian be unable to provide alternate clothing, the student will be provided with an appropriate item from the school clothes closet.

  • After three (3) citations are given for dress code violations, the student will receive an office referral.
