DRESS CODE—BACKPACKS, BOOK BAGS
Students are encouraged to be neatly dressed and well-groomed.
There appears to be a definite relationship between good dress habits,
good work habits, and proper school behavior.
Any type of attire which attracts undue attention to the wearer, and thus
causes a disturbance in the school, is in bad taste and
is not acceptable. Clothing must be size appropriate and be worn as intended.
Clothing that would be dangerous to the health and safety of any
student is unacceptable. For these reasons the following rules pertaining
to dress will be enforced:
1. Caps, hats, sunglasses, or other head covering are not permitted inside the building, except for medical reasons. These items will be taken up and not returned until school is out at the end of the year.
2. All shirts and tops (which must be no lower than three inches from the neck bone) must have sleeves and must not be see-through. A buttoned shirt must be buttoned to the second button from the top of the shirt. Shirts must be long enough to be tucked in. Shirts, tops, and dresses with backs out, see through, or low cut are not permitted. All pants and shirts should be worn to cover the waist at all times.
3. All pants/shorts are to be worn fitting at the waist. Very wide-legged pants are not permitted. Bottom wear must be size appropriate for the wearer with no sagging or bagging, and must be worn securely at and around the waist so as not to reveal undergarments. All pants and shorts must not have any holes above the knee or may not have any shreds that expose the body.
4. Shorts, skirts, skorts, or dresses cannot be higher than three inches above the top of the knee. Spandex, short shorts, cut-offs, boxer shorts, or thermal underwear is not permitted. Form fitting pants (i.e. leggings, jeggings, yoga pants, tights, skinny jeans) are not acceptable unless worn under dress code compliant skirts/dresses. Dresses must have sleeves and a modest neckline (no lower than three inches from the neck bone).
5. Clothing which advertises alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, illegal substances, weaponry (guns, knives, etc.) or which displays sexual innuendoes or offensive language is not permitted.
6. The American flag will not be worn on clothing in an unpatriotic manner.
7. Shoes must be worn at all times.
8. Body piercing jewelry is not allowed except earrings. Chains are prohibited. Protruding metal studs are not permitted on clothing or jewelry.
9. Painting, spraying, or marking of the face, hair, or other exposed body parts is not permitted. Hair is not to be sprayed or dyed in unnatural colors (such as blue, pink, green, orange, yellow, etc). All hair colors must be natural color tones with styles that do not distract from the learning process. All students are to wear their hair in such a manner that does not cover the eyes. Writing on body and clothes is not permitted.
10. No pajamas or house shoes are permitted.
Backpacks and book bags must be clear and/or mesh must be kept in lockers, and must be free of any writing other than the student’s name. This does not apply to lunch boxes, purses, or carry cases. All bags carried as a purse should not exceed 21 linear inches in combined length, width, and height. (For example: Length + Width + Height). This is approximately 250 cubic inches. Any bag larger than these requirements will not be allowed.
Other dress codes may be stipulated for specific classes or activities as administration deems necessary for safety and appropriateness. This dress code applies to all students. Students who are in violation of the dress code may be placed in ISS for the day. In the case of an extreme dress code violation, the student may also be required to call home for more appropriate clothing. Any class time that may be missed due to a dress code violation will be considered unexcused.
