    Please be advised that in addition to the WOIS Uniform Policy, all students are expected to follow RCSD Student Dress Code as noted below:

    5300.25 STUDENT DRESS CODE

    All students, from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and adult education students, are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to dress appropriately (and age-appropriately) for school and school functions. The dress code applies at any time that students are on District property, including the school buildings and Central Office, and whenever they are attending any school function, wherever located. Students and their parents have the primary responsibility for acceptable student dress and appearance. Teachers and all other school personnel should exemplify and reinforce acceptable student dress and help students develop an understanding of appropriate appearance in the school setting, which is the workplace where the student is engaged in the vocation of education.

    A student's dress, grooming and appearance, including hair style/color, jewelry, make-up, and nails, shall:

    • Be safe, appropriate and not disrupt or interfere with the educational process.
    • Recognize that stocking caps, "doo rags," bandanas and hats (other than hats or scarves mandated by verifiable religious requirements or verifiable medical reasons); unbuttoned dress shirts or sport shirts; and extremely brief garments such as men’s "muscle shirts," women’s tube tops, net tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines (front and/or back) and see-through garments are not appropriate and not permitted. For school purposes, exposure of male or female navels or gluteal areas; bare chests; or cleavage are not appropriate and not permitted.
    • Ensure that underwear is completely covered with outer clothing, and that pants or slacks are cinched with a belt of appropriate size for the student’s waist.
    • Include footwear at all times. Footwear that is a safety hazard will not be allowed.
    • Not include the wearing of hats in the classroom, study halls, assembly rooms, cafeterias, or internal hallways except for a medical or religious purpose.
    • Not include items that are vulgar, obscene, libelous, or denigrate others on account of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, gender, disability, or sexual orientation. Not promote and/or endorse the use of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs and/or encourage other illegal or violent activities.
