Dress Code

In view of the cultural diversity of our students, a few guidelines regarding student dress are in order. We hope these are taken in the spirit of cultural sensitivity, common sense, and respect for others. Students are expected to wear appropriate clothing while attending school, on field trips, or at any other school functions.

  • Shorts, skirts, and dresses should be as close as possible to mid-thigh (in both the front and back).
  • Shirts and tops should be of a modest cut. Shirt length should reach the top of the shorts/pants/skirts and the midriff should not be exposed. Regarding shirts with straps, shirts should have two straps that measure two student fingers in width.
  • Tank tops are not appropriate for male students
  • Undergarments, and the body parts they are meant to cover, should not be visible at any time.
  • Sunglasses and hats with bills and brims should not be worn indoors.
  • Headphones/earbuds aren’t to be used outside of the classroom (hallways, breaks, lunch, etc.) and only in classrooms with the teacher’s permission.
  • Regarding clothing with hoods, the “hood” portion of the garment should not be worn in the upright/hooded position.
  • Clothing which depicts, advertises or promotes drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or violence is not appropriate.
  • Clothing which contains nudity or messages that are vulgar, offensive, obscene or defamatory is not appropriate.
  • Appropriate shoes and shorts/athletic pants must be worn during physical education instruction (no jeans, dresses, skirts).
  • If you are not sure if something is appropriate, it is better to err on the side of modesty.
  • If a student is not in dress code, the parents will be contacted.
