• Page 33 in the handbook discusses dress code and a handout outlining what may and may not be worn on school grounds was sent home the first day of school.  To recap:

    • Clothing must be age appropriate, must not be disruptive to the teaching-learning environment, and cannot be provocative, revealing, indecent, vulgar, or obscene. 
    • Skirts, skorts, and dresses must be no higher than three inches (3”) above the top of the knee, and any slits in dresses and skirts must also adhere to this three inch rule. 
    • Shorts must be no higher than four inches (4”) above the top of the knee. 
    • Dresses, shirts, and blouses must cover two inches (2”) across the top of the shoulder. Spaghetti straps, strapless tops/halters and plunging necklines are not allowed and the torso and cleavage must be covered at all times. 
    • No sagging pants are allowed, meaning all pants must be worn with the waistband no lower than the hipbones. 
    • Clothing will not be allowed which promotes alcoholic beverages, tobacco, or the use of controlled substances, depicts violence, or is of a sexual nature. 
    • Hats, caps, visors, bandannas, and sunglasses are not to be worn inside the school building. Staff members will confiscate unauthorized items. 
    • Clothing is not to be sheer or see-through where the torso is revealed. At no time are undergarments to be visible. 
    • Proper footwear is required at all times which is safe and does not result in a substantial disruption to the academic integrity of the school day. Shoes that have laces must fit, be laced and tied. 
    • Pajamas and bedroom shoes/slippers may not be worn. 
    • Leggings or yoga pants must be worn with a top that reaches mid-thigh. 
    • Clothing and/or jewelry commonly recognized as being related to a group or gang, which provokes others to act violently or be intimidated by fear of violence, shall not be worn. 
    • Clothing must be worn appropriately (belts must be buckled and worn at the hipbones). 
    • Heavy, large jewelry, belt buckles and/or accessories (wallet chains) that are threatening, dangerous, distractive, disruptive or could be utilized as a weapon may not be worn.
