CG Families,

Thank you so much for sharing your most precious possessions with us--your children. We are excited to kick this year off and help your students learn, grow, and achieve success each and every day. Our school motto is Choose Greatness as we will strive for greatness in everything we do. Some days greatness will look different than others, but everyday we will strive to be better than we were the day before! #choosegreatness

Mrs. Cameron, Principal

CSISD Dress policy 22-23

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

Intermediate (Grades 5-6)

Clothing should cover the body and should fit in such a manner as to promote the modesty of individuals.

1. Shoes should be worn at all times.

2. Clothing with distracting holes or tears with skin visible are not permitted.

3. Clothing shall be of such length and design to cover the mid-section of the body.

4. Sheer or see-through clothing requires a camisole or tank top that covers the midriff underneath.

5. Pants must fit at the waist.

6. Hem lengths of dresses, skirts, shorts, and skorts must be below each individual’s fingertips. Clothing should meet fingertip length at all times.

7. Clothing shall not be worn which displays:

  • Offensive, obscene, vulgar, or suggestive pictures or slogans.

  • Pictures, symbols, or slogans associated with gang activity, or subversive groups or activities which incite violence or are deemed inappropriate for a school setting.

  • Pictures or advertisements for alcohol, drugs, or tobacco products including but not limited to beer, wine, liquor slogans, or registered trademarks of such companies.

8. Sleepwear such as pajama pants is not allowed.

9. Headwear is allowed for medical reasons or as a legitimate expression of a student’s religious practice and faith. Hairnets, picks, combs, or rollers/curlers are not allowed to be worn in a student’s hair on campus.

10. Blankets should not be worn inside the building.

Teachers can send students that are out of dress code to the office at any time during the school day. 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.

Students refusing to comply with principal requests to conform to dress code will be sent to ISS 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.

School owned clothing must be returned the following school day. If the clothing is not returned a fine will be assessed until the clothing is returned. In addition to this, if the violation is a hat, jewelry, or chain violation, the principal will confiscate the item. The confiscated item may be picked up after school. Items that are consistently confiscated will be kept by the assistant principal until the end of the school year. A student could receive several dress code violations in one day, if they make that choice. Each additional violation will result in the next level in the consequence continuum.
