Elementary School Dress Code

  • STUDENT DRESS CODE

    All students are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to dress appropriately for school and school functions. Students and their parents have the primary responsibility for acceptable student dress and appearance. Teachers and all other district personnel should exemplify and reinforce acceptable student dress and help students develop an understanding of appropriate appearance in the school setting.

    A student’s dress, grooming, and appearance, including hairstyle/color, jewelry, make-up, and nails shall:

    1. Be safe, appropriate and not disrupt or interfere with the educational process.
    2. Recognize that extremely brief garments such as tube tops, net tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines (front and/or back) and see-through garments are not appropriate.
    3. Ensure that underwear is completely covered with outer clothing.
    4. Include footwear at all times. Footwear that is a safety hazard will not be allowed. Flip-flops are not appropriate school attire. They are not safe on playgrounds or stairs. Thank you for helping us keep your child(ren) safe and free from injury. Sneakers or hard, rubber-soled shoes should be worn.
    5. Not include the wearing of hats or hoods in the classroom except for a medical or religious purpose.
    6. Not include items that are vulgar, obscene, and libelous or denigrate others on account of race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual orientation or disability.
    7. Not promote and/or endorse the use of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs and/or encourage other illegal or violent activities.

    Each building principal shall be responsible for informing all students and their parents of the student dress code at the beginning of the school year and any revisions to the dress code made during the school year. 

    Students who violate the student dress code shall be required to modify their appearance by covering or removing the offending item and, if necessary or practical, replacing it with an acceptable item.  Any student who refuses to do so shall be subject to discipline, up to and including in-school suspension for the day.  Any student who repeatedly fails to comply with the dress code shall be subject to further discipline, up to and including out-of-school suspension.
