Dress for school should be safe and conducive to learning. The choice and type of clothing and hairdo is a matter of individual taste, but must be safe, appropriate and not disruptive to the educational process. Any extreme clothing or hair style may become distracting or disruptive. A staff member will talk privately with any student in inappropriate attire or hairstyle. Depending on the violation, a student may be required to call home for a change of clothing. Guidelines for dress are:
- Shirts must cover the student's torso and all undergarments.
- Pants should fit around the waist. No undergarments may be exposed (i.e. sagging pants).
- All clothing must be hemmed.
- Hats and hoods may only be worn outside for sun protection or head warmth during winter.
- No make-up may be worn.
- Unnatural hair coloring is not permitted.
- No clothing with printing or pictures making reference to tobacco, drugs, alcohol, sex, or slurs.
- Shorts, dresses and skirts must be finger-tip length or longer.
- Sleeveless tops must have a minimum "two finger width" shoulder strap. No "off the shoulder" tops. Arm holes may not be excessively large.
- Footwear must be worn at all times and must be safe for activity. Shoes/sandals must have a heel strap. Flip flops, Roller shoes and high-heeled shoes are not allowed.
- Sports shoes are to be worn for PE.
