Students are expected to dress appropriately for school. Appearance should be kept within socially accepted guidelines of cleanliness, modesty, and good taste. Clothing that is distracting or disruptive in an educational setting is unacceptable.

  • Bare midriffs, strapless, backless, or see-through garments, halter tops, low-cut blouses, tube tops, and muscle shirts are not to be worn.
  • Any apparel or item with a message advocating violence, weapons, alcohol, other drugs, illegal behavior, or expressing vulgarity may not be worn in school or at school activities. In addition, clothing with sexually inappropriate statements is not permitted.
  • Head coverings of any sort, such as hats, hoods, or bandanas, are not to be worn in the school building. Students must remove their head coverings when they enter the building, and keep the coverings off until they exit the building, with religious exemptions. Students may have hats confiscated and returned at the end of the day.
  • Winter jackets and other winter outerwear clothing are not permitted in classrooms. Garments of this nature need to be put in lockers during the school day. However, sweatshirts and sweaters are appropriate in the winter when temperatures can vary from room to room.
  • Health regulations require that shoes be worn at all times in a public building.
  • An administrator is the only person who may make an exception to this policy.
