Dress code for 2018-2019

Posted on: May 21, 2018
To be able to plan for next year, here is the Dress Code approved by the Board of Education beginning in the fall:
  1. All clothing worn by students must be appropriate for a school setting, and should not display inappropriate or offensive language, messages or images. 
  2. Undergarments should not be visible. Tops that expose the midriff or chest, tank tops, mesh tops, and shirts with no sleeves are not acceptable. 
  3. No hats, bandanas, head coverings (hoods), or gloves should be worn during the school day. 
  4. No oversized coats are permitted during the school day.
  5. Shorts, skirts, and dresses should be an appropriate length and should be at least mid-thigh and not overly revealing. 
  6. House shoes, slippers or shoes with heels over one inch should not be worn to school.
  7. Excessive hair color, jewelry or piercings that create a disruption to the school setting are not acceptable.
***Exceptions to these dress code items for religious reasons should be brought to administration at the beginning of the school year by parents and will require written documentation.
