Dress Code Reminders

It is hot outside, we know. School dress code still has to apply. Please check outfits before students leave for school. The school Handbook is attached below for reference.
  • Appropriate shoes must be worn. Sandals must have heel straps. Flip-flops or backless shoes or sandals are not acceptable.
  • Clothing, jewelry and personal items shall be free of writing, pictures or any other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, which bear drug, alcohol or tobacco company advertising, promotions and likenesses, or which advocate death, violence, racial, ethnic or religious prejudice.
  • Hats, caps and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors.
  • Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times. See-through or fish-net fabrics, halter tops, spaghetti straps, off-the-shoulder or low-cut tops, strapless or tube tops, backless shirts, bare midriffs and skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh are prohibited.
  • Gym shorts may not be worn in classes other than physical education.
  • Hair shall be clean and neatly groomed and the color may not cause a distraction to the educational environment. Hair may not be sprayed by any coloring that would drip when wet.
  • Spiked jewelry and waist chains will not be allowed.
  • Bandanas and sweatbands shall not be worn unless prior approval is granted by a site administrator.
  • Muscle shirts, tank shirts, or underwear shirts may not be worn. Clothing that is suggestive or revealing will not be allowed.
  • Pants must not be worn to expose undergarments or bare skin above the waist.
  • Clothing that is considered nightwear (pajamas and slippers) may not be worn, with the exception of a designated day by the school.

School Policy Regarding Costumes:

Our goal is to maintain our educational purpose and provide instruction to students with minimal distractions. Outside of school-sanctioned dress-up days, costumes are not permitted, as they do not serve an educational purpose. Outside of any school-sanctioned event, please follow these general rules:

  • No Costumes (this includes fake ears, noses, wigs, etc.)
  • No Fake Blood/Fake Weapons
  • No Full-Face Coverings, Masks, or Face Paint
  • Student dress should not create a disruption to classroom instruction or learning
