    District Dress Code: 

    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:

    All Students

    • Appropriate undergarments shall be worn and appropriately covered.
    • Sunglasses, combs, hats, bandanas and head coverings shall not be worn in the buildings. Head coverings worn for bona fide religious or medical reasons may be allowed. Potential exemptions shall be filed with the principal by the parent and shall be handled on an individual basis.
    • When belts are worn, they must be buckled. If there is no buckle, the belt must be tied.
    • Shirts and blouses must be buttoned. • Tattoos are not allowed to be visible during the school day or extracurricular activities.
    • Clothing or accessories with lettering, symbols or decorations that detract from the learning process or illustrate or promote alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, drugs, sex, vulgarity or violence either explicitly or by innuendo will not be allowed.
    • T-shirts, hats, tattoos and other articles of clothing bearing words or symbols, color combinations, or any other recognized gang insignia, articles of clothing or uniforms, when recognized by the principal as such will not be allowed.
    • Shoes are to be worn at all times. Shoes designed for strings or buckles must be fully laced/fastened. Students shall not wear shoes that the principal determines to be a hazard to the safety of students or others on a campus.
    • Students will not attend classes with their hair rolled up nor will they apply makeup in the classroom.
