Students in violation of the dress code may be required to wear their gym shirt. If a child is given a top or bottom on loan from the office, they will have to leave their clothing as a “deposit” and pick it up the next day. The loaner clothing will need to be washed and returned to school the next school day.

A student should come to school dressed properly to go outside at all times of the year. He/she will be expected to go outside for lunch recess, and in some cases classroom recess, unless otherwise noted by a doctor. If the student’s attire is inappropriate, the parent will be contacted and expected to remedy the situation. 

Since student learning and safety are our top priority, the following guidelines are also in place:

  • Clothing, including outerwear and shoes, that displays inappropriate words or illustrations including, but not limited to tobacco, alcohol, weapons, violence, depiction of gang activity, (including graffiti, symbols, colors) etc., will not be allowed. Any inappropriate items will be confiscated and held in the office. They will be available for pickup at the end of the school year.
  • Shorts/skirts must reach at least to the fingertip of the student with arms extended at their side. No tops revealing the midriff or low cut shirts revealing cleavage will be permitted.
  • Hats and bandannas are not to be worn in the school.
  • Belts must be plain solid black, brown or uniform color.
  • Hair color must be a natural shade and hairstyles can not affect the learning environment.
  • Heavy chains, dog collars and large dangling earrings are not allowed.
  • Because of the number of stairs in the building, open toe and open back shoes will not be allowed.
  • A child’s skin should not be decorated with temporary tattoos, writing, glitter or excessive makeup
  • Expensive jewelry should be left at home, the school is not responsible for these items if lost or stolen.
