Student apparel must be in compliance with Provo City School District’s Safe and Orderly Schools Policy.
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 gang-related apparel. Students and parents may contact the SRO for more detailed information.
Extreme or Inappropriate Clothing: Clothing items 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 clothing must conceal undergarments. All students must wear clothing that covers areas from one armpit across to the other armpit, down to approximately 3 to 4 inches in length on the upper thighs, and tops must have shoulder straps.
Hats and other Headwear: Hats and Hoodies or other headwear will not be worn in the building or on school grounds at any time unless it is a school-sponsored “Hat Day” or unless there is an extenuating circumstance (e.g., medical). They may also wear a school beanie that can be purchased in the Pride Store using Pride Cards. This policy applies to students, faculty, and staff. Hats that “go with the outfit” are not exceptions. Hoods on sweatshirts should be kept down while in the building.
Shoes: 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: Sunglasses are not permitted in the school unless prescribed by a doctor.
Jewelry: 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 appropriate.
