Uniform Policy/Dress Code

Dress Code Policy

Students are required to wear a school uniform daily and show proper attention to cleanliness, health, neatness and safety for school activities. A well groomed appearance is important in developing a positive self image and complements the school’s instructional program.

Students must follow the following guidelines:

  1. All shoes must be tied.
  2. No open toe shoes will be allowed.
  3. No heels will be allowed.
  4. Students have a choice between khaki and dark blue uniform pants, shorts, skirts, jumpers or skorts.
  5. Students have a choice between red, white, hunter green or navy blue uniform shirts or blouses.
  6. All students must have their shirts tucked in at all times.
  7. Every Friday will be a free dress day, students can come in regular clothing, and they do not have to be tucked in this day.

We strongly feel that a uniform policy like the one above is fair and allows flexibility and choice. Please keep in mind that we will be strictly enforcing the uniform policy.

For students who are on uniform waivers, the following guidelines must be followed as stated in Board Policy 5132:

  • Clothing, jewelry and personal items shall be free of writing, pictures, or any other insignia that are obscene, libelous, or slanderous; which so incite students as to create a clear and present danger of the commission of unlawful acts on school premises or the violation of lawful school regulations, or the substantial disruption of the orderly operation of the school; which constitute sexual harassment in violation of state or federal law; which advertise or promote the illegal use of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or any controlled substance; or which promote or advocate racial, ethnic, or religious prejudice or hate.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times. Sandals must have heel straps. Flip-flops or backless shoes or sandals are not acceptable.

  • Dress, hairstyle or makeup which is of a disruptive nature or that interfere with study habits of students in class or school are not permitted.

  • Hats or caps shall not be worn indoors and shall be worn only when necessary or appropriate for the instructional program or school activity.

  • Clothing should be worn for the purpose and manner intended.
  • Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times. See-through or fish-net fabrics, halter tops, off-the-shoulder or low-cut tops, bare midriffs and skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh are prohibited.
  • Teachers may impose more stringent dress requirements to accommodate the special needs of certain sports and/or classes.
  • The district prohibits extra long t-shirts, baggie pants and white knee socks.
  • Students not demonstrating proper attire or adhering to the dress code will be asked to change. Parents will be called to bring appropriate clothing to school or the student may be provided loaner clothes from the office.

PLEASE NOTE: If a student has a jacket/sweater that contains a hood (hoodie), students are not allowed to wear hoods during the school day (class time, recess, lunch, etc.). Students caught wearing hoods will be asked to remove the hood. If there is a recurring problem, students may be asked to remove their jacket entirely; parents will be contacted, and/or student will not be allowed to wear jackets/sweaters that contain hoods. Students may wear jackets/sweaters with hoods during rainy days while outside. Once inside the class, hoods must be removed.
