STUDENT DRESS AND GROOMING STANDARDS

Because certain fads and extremes of dress and hair styling tend to attract improper attention to the individual and sometimes interfere with the normal educational process, all students are expected to conform to the standards of dress and grooming outlined below when attending school or participating in any school activity. The only exceptions shall be for special activity days which will be declared by the school principal.

A. Standards for students:

1. Clothing shall be modest, neat, clean, in good repair, and shall include shoes. Slippers cannot be worn for shoes. Clothing and/or jewelry shall not be worn which displays obscene or suggestive words or pictures or which advertises any substance which a student cannot legally possess or use. Jewelry shall not be worn in any pierced body parts other than the ears. Shorts and skirts must be at least mid-thigh length when the student is sitting. Some clothing, however, may still be inappropriate due to its style or the physical make-up of the student. Pajama pants are not allowed. Extreme clothing, which includes, but is not limited to, sagging clothing; excessively oversized clothing; clothing that is mutilated, torn, ripped, or frayed; and cross-gender dressing or grooming are prohibited. All shirts must have sleeves; no low cut tops that show cleavage; no midriffs; no showing of underwear, no slogans on shirts that advertise or represent alcohol, tobacco, drugs, anything of a crude or sexual nature, anything considered gang related, anything representing criminal or illegal activities, and/or anything infringing upon the rights of others.

2.Jewelry shall not be worn in any pierced body parts other than the ears. Jewelry, accessories, piercings, tattoos, chains, etc., which are disfiguring or draw undue attention that distract, disrupt, or interfere with the learning atmosphere at school or at school activities and events, and/or create a health, safety, or welfare issue are prohibited.

3.Hair must be maintained in a clean and well-groomed manner. Hair that is fashioned in odd or extreme styles and/or that is colored with vibrant, unnatural looking colors which draws undue attention, distracts, disrupts, and/or interferes with the learning atmosphere at school or at school activities or events is prohibited.

4.Gang-related clothing, personal items, grooming, hair styles, colors, and paraphernalia are not allowed in schools or at school related activities and events. This includes, but is not limited to, tattoos, bandannas, chains, clothing, or jewelry associated with gangs, gang symbols, names, initials, and insignias. School administration in consultation with law enforcement agencies will determine what constitutes "gang-related" clothing, personal items, grooming, hair styles, colors, and paraphernalia.

5.Hats or sunglasses shall not be worn during regular school hours.

6. Some wallet chains may not be allowed due to their length.

B. If a student’s dress or grooming interferes with the normal educational process, he/she will be asked to change whatever is in question in order to return to class. If a student refuses to fix the problem, he or she will be placed in ISS or sent home. Dress code violations do not start over at the beginning of a new term or semester. Continual non-compliance of the dress code policy will result in receiving a ticket on the 3rd violation and each subsequent violation thereafter. On the 4th violation and each subsequent violation thereafter ISS will be given. Other consequences also may be necessary at the administration’s discretion.
