Cocoa High School Dress Code Reminder

Parents/guardians, we could use your help in reminding your child(ren) of the dress code policy at CHS.

Pride is taken in the appearance of Cocoa High School students. School is the student's place of business where appropriate dress and hygiene are important. Students must dress in good taste out of respect for each other and their school. Students must dress in a manner that would not constitute a disruption, safety hazard, or impropriety. The responsibility for the dress and appearance of each student properly rests with the student and his/her guardian(s). The dress code is subject to the discretion of the administration.

  • Garments must be of a length and fit that are suitable to the build and stature of the student and must not expose undergarments or be otherwise immodest.
  • Clothing, jewelry, and accessories shall not convey messages that are crude, vulgar/profane, violent/death-oriented (Gothic), gang related, sexually suggestive, and/or promoting weapons, alcohol, drugs, or tobacco.
  • Pierced jewelry shall be limited to the ear. Dog collars, tongue rings, wallet chains, large hair picks, chains that connect one part of the body to another, or other jewelry/accessories that pose a safety concern for the student or other shall be prohibited. Clear plastic spacers or retainers may be worn in facial piercings. Band-aids cannot cover a piercing.
  • Hats, curlers, scarves, bandanas, and sweat bands are not to be worn in buildings or outside in hallways. Extreme hair styles or hair colors are prohibited.

Thank you
