Gang Related Apparel
Clothing and items considered gang-related will not be permitted. Some examples include but are not limited to: cut
out belt buckles, hanging belts, bandanas, hair nets, certain professional team apparel, and lettering written in the Old
English style. School officials will collaborate with the School Resource Officer (SRO) to enforce rules related to gangrelated
apparel. Students and parents may contact the SRO for more detailed information.
Extreme or Inappropriate Clothing
Clothing with vulgar words, profane or obscene slogans, depictions of violence, or advertisements for alcohol,
tobacco, drugs or other inappropriate items are not allowed. Students should come to school appropriately dressed in
clothing that is clean, non-distracting, and in good repair.
Clothing and apparel that is so conspicuous, extreme, or odd that it may draw undue attention, disrupt, or tend to
interfere with the learning atmosphere is unacceptable. Clothing intended as undergarments, worn as outerwear, will
not be permitted.
All shirts/blouses must cover the shoulder and conceal undergarments. Therefore, shirts/blouses that gap, sag or are
transparent in such a way as to make undergarments visible are not allowed. Inappropriate clothing includes tank tops,
tops with spaghetti straps, open-cut shirts (i.e., sports jerseys or muscle shirts), and shirts/blouses that expose a bare
midriff (including when arms are raised) or that have a low neckline.
All shorts, skirts, and dresses must be at least three-quarter length (midway between the knee and the fingertips with
shoulders relaxed). Short shorts and mini-skirts are not allowed. All shorts must be tailored/hemmed with no frayed
Pants must be an appropriate length and not drag the floor. Pants will be worn at the waist and properly fit the
waistline. Wearing of oversized or baggy pants and/or jeans is prohibited at school. Leggings must be thick enough so
they are not see-through, and they must properly conceal underwear.
Hats and other Headwear
Hats will not be worn in the building at any time unless it is a school-sponsored “Hat Day” or unless there is an
extenuating circumstance (i.e., medical). This policy applies to students, faculty, and staff. Hats that “go with the
outfit” are not exceptions. Hoods should be kept down while in the building.
Shoes must be worn at all times. Shoes should be non-marking and in good repair. No “wheelie” type shoes are
permitted at school.
Sunglasses are not permitted in the school unless prescribed by a doctor.
Any jewelry or piercing that is extreme, distracting, or that may present a safety risk (e.g., spiked gauges for the ears)
is not acceptable. This includes chains and spikes on bracelets, necklaces, gauges, wallets, etc.
Students who are in violation of the dress standards may be asked to contact home or be loaned appropriate clothes in
order to make necessary changes in their appearance. Students may remain out of class until they are in compliance
with the dress code. School administrators reserve the right to address and enforce dress code concerns as they deem
