Dress Code K-8

  • Dress Code: Please refer to the SJUSD Family Handbook (https://www.sanjuan.edu/handbook) regarding the district policy on what students can and cannot wear.

    Dress Code

    Each school establishes its own dress code. Will Rogers and Louis Pasteur middle schools and Dyer-Kelly Elementary School have school uniforms. Families may contact the school principal to discuss assistance with, or alternatives to, school uniforms. Students must conform to the general dress code policy of the school.

    All students are expected to dress appropriately for a school environment. Any clothing, hairstyles or hair color that significantly interferes with or disrupts the educational environment, unless protected under the freedom of speech laws, board policy or administrative regulation, is unacceptable. Clothing, jewelry and personal items (backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles, etc.) with language or images that are vulgar, sexually suggestive, discriminatory, obscene, libelous or that promote illegal or violent content, such as the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco or drug paraphernalia, indicates membership in or promotion of a gang or clothing that contains threats, is prohibited. Clothing should fit, be neat and clean and conform to standards of safety, good taste and decency. Clothing that exposes cleavage, private parts, the midriff, undergarments or that is otherwise sexually provocative, is prohibited.

    Each school shall allow students to wear sun-protective clothing, including but not limited to hats, for outdoor use during the school day. Each school site may adopt rules that specify the types of sun-protective clothing that students will be allowed to wear outdoors and specify the types of clothing and hats that may be “inappropriate.” (EC § 35183.5; BP and AR 5145.2)

    Encina High School provides clothing for San Juan Unified students and their families. Donations of gently-used, clean clothing and shoes are welcomed. The clothes closet is located at 1400 Bell Street – adjacent to the gym parking lot—and is open Thursdays from noon to 2 p.m. Please call 916-971-5891 with questions.
