The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:

  • Students will not wear the following within the school building or to off campus school-sponsored activities:

    • Sun shades (sunglasses) unless prescribed by a doctor.

    • Spikes, taps, plates, lights, sounds, or wheels on shoes are prohibited.

    • Head coverings of any type unless medically approved.

    • Clothing with conspicuously low necklines.  Sleeveless garments must be close fitting at the neck, and arms with shoulders covered. No undergarments showing.  No racerback shirts.

    • Shorts or dresses must be no shorter than mid-thigh from front to back.  Leggings may be worn as undergarments if the top fits the mid-thigh requirement.  All pants and shorts are to be worn with the waistline no lower than the natural waist.

    • Oversized clothing.

    • Clothing or adornments that convey obscenity, advocacy of a gang, death (i.e. graphic skulls or skeleton), Satanism, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, ridicule of our nation, weapons, or suggestive or violent behavior.

    • Intentional ragged, torn, or frayed pants may be worn as long as not skin above mid-thigh is visible.

    • Makeup that is distracting.  

    • Clothing that exposes skin at the waist, stomach, or back with the arms raised above the shoulders.

    • Clothing that is see through or exposes the undergarments.

    • No exposed tattoos.

    • Distractive (designer) contact lenses may not be worn.

    • Distractive dental decorations, jewelry, or “grills” are not allowed.

    • Pajamas, house shoes, & other forms of sleepwear are not allowed.

    • Trench coats are prohibited.

  • Students will wear all appropriate underwear (bras, briefs).

  • Students must groom their hair in such a fashion that it is not disruptive or distracting to the teaching/learning process as interpreted by campus administrator.

    • Hair is not to be a distracting color.

    • Hair designs are not allowed (examples: Mohawks, shaved designs, etc...)

  • Male students will not wear earrings in their ears even if covered.  No one will wear earrings in or on any other part of the anatomy.

  • Chains will not be used for wallets, purses, or clothing parts, since they are considered a weapon.

  • Appropriate jewelry styles will be determined by the administration.

If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
