    Dress Code for Students
     
    All students are expected to dress appropriately for school and school functions and to give proper attention to personal cleanliness, grooming, and appearance. Inappropriate dress and appearance can be distracting and interfere with student learning.
     
    Specifically, all aspects of a student’s appearance (including hair style, hair color, jewelry, make-up, and nails) should be safe, appropriate, and not disrupt or interfere with the educational process.
     
    The following are not appropriate on school property:
    • Stocking caps, “do rags,” and bandanas
    • Hats (except for medical or religious purposes)
    • Revealing clothing such as men’s muscle shirts, women’s tube tops, net tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines, and see-through clothing.
    • Clothing that exposes a student’s navel, buttocks, bare chest, or cleavage.
    • Clothing that includes words or images that are vulgar, obscene, or disrespectful of others.
    • Clothing that promotes the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs or that encourages illegal or violent activities.
    • Clothing that reveals underwear. Pants should be held up with a belt of appropriate size for the student’s waist.
