• Dress Code

    Students must wear appropriate underclothing and shoes. (Shower thongs or similar shoes are not permitted because of safety considerations as students travel the hallways.) 

    Students' shorts, skirts, or dresses must be mid thigh or longer in length. 

    Students are not permitted to wear very tight, very loose, oversized, revealing or very short clothing. Pants must be worn at the waist. Examples of unacceptable clothing, according to this guideline include, but are not limited to, cutoffs, jogging, wind, or biker shorts, tank or crop tops. 

    Clothing with visual or written messages which are likely to disrupt the school environment is prohibited. Examples of such prohibited visual or written messages include, but are not limited to, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, weapons, violence, vulgar or obscene language, and insults to race, religion, gender, or ethnicity. 

    A student's hair must be neat, clean and must not be distracting or interfere with the learning environment. Extreme hairstyles and hair color are not acceptable. A male student's hair may not extend below the bottom of a sport shirt collar. 

    Noisy or distracting jewelry or accessories may not be worn. Male students may not wear earrings of any type. No type of cap or hat is to be worn in the school. Sunglasses may be worn only when prescribed by a physician. 

    A student who is sent home to correct a grooming problem will be absent on an unexcused basis for that period of time. In the event that a parent cannot be reached to remove a student from school to correct his grooming, the student will be placed in in-school suspension. Discipline consequences may also result for Grooming Code violations.
