Student Dress Rules

The school needs your cooperation in building standards of dress and grooming among pupils.  There is usually a distinct correlation between a well-groomed and carefully dressed student and academic and social success. Children are to be dressed in clothing and footwear that allows them to participate in the games and activities that are part of our dynamic elementary school program.

Students shall wear appropriate clothing and footwear and groom themselves for school in a manner that does not offend the rules of decency, reflect negatively on or detract from any phase of the educational program, or present a hazard to health or safety. Students in violation of dress code guidelines MAY NOT ATTEND CLASS.

The guidelines listed below are considered minimum standards, and parents may set standards for their own children which may be more restrictive than those indicated in this code. The following articles of clothing are not appropriate for students:

    • Strapless tops or dresses of any kind and bare midriff tops
    • Any apparel with inappropriate logos or slogans
      • Beer or alcohol, tobacco, drug advertisements
      • Sexual/profane language implication
      • Cult implications
      • Violence/weapons
    • Clothes that expose undergarments
    • Shoes with any type of wheels
    • Strapless sandals, flip-flops, etc. which are not securely fastened to the foot.
    • High heels
    • Extremes in dress/hair/appearance which detract from the learning environment or which are unsafe
    • Hats/caps
      • Sun-protective clothing is allowed for outdoor use
      • Hats, caps, and hoods are not to be worn inside classrooms or other school buildings

Note: If students are not dressed in an appropriate manner for school and if their dress disrupts the education of other students, they will be asked to call home for a change of clothing.
