• Dress Code

     

            Students should wear a red, white or blue polo shirt with blue or khaki pants.  The girls may wear a blue jumper or kapri pants.

     

    An important aspect of the Code of Conduct pertains to appropriate dress on school property. School is the “workplace” for students in every grade. As such, it requires appropriate dress, grooming, and appearance.  The following is a summary of the District’s dress code:

     

    All aspects of a student’s appearance (including hairstyle, hair color, jewelry, make-up, and nails) should be safe, appropriate, and not disrupt or interfere with the educational process. Students who violate the dress code will be required to cover or remove the offending item and, if practical, to replace it with an acceptable item.  Parents will be contacted immediately.  Students who refuse to do so will be subject to discipline, up to and including suspension.

    The following are not appropriate on school property:

     

    ú  Stocking caps, “doo rags,” and bandanas.

    ú  Hats (except for medical or religious purposes).

    ú  Revealing clothing such as muscle shirts, tube tops, net tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, plunging neck-lines, and see-through clothing.

    ú  Clothing that exposes a student’s navel, buttocks, bare chest, or cleavage.

    ú  Clothing that includes items that are vulgar, obscene, or disrespectful of others.

    ú  Clothing that promotes the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs or that encourages illegal or violent activities.

    ú  Underwear should be completely covered with outer clothing, and pants should be held up with a belt of appropriate size for the student’s waist.

    ú  In addition, individual schools may implement their own dress codes.

    ú  Visitors to schools, including parents, are also expected to dress appropriately while on school property or attending school functions. Teachers and other school personnel are expected to model and reinforce appropriate dress at school and to help students understand its importance.

     

    Parents should monitor the weather conditions and make sure their child is dressed appropriately.
