Dress Code

  • Each school establishes its own dress code, which is available from the school office. Pasteur, Rogers, Salk and Sylvan middle schools and Dyer-Kelly, Howe, and Skycrest elementary schools have school uniforms. Parents may contact these principals to discuss assistance with or alternatives to school uniforms. Students must conform to the general dress code policy of the school.

    In general, students are expected to wear appropriate clothing which is clean, fits properly, doesn't prevent them from participating in any school activity, and is not distracting. For safety, shoes must be worn at all times. Hats may not be worn indoors. Clothing must cover the torso, and sagging pants are not permitted.

    Clothing and other items worn or carried by students, including buttons and backpacks, may not: denigrate any group; promote violation of school rules; depict drugs, tobacco, alcohol, violence, unlawful use of weapons, intimidation, gang/cult affiliation, inappropriate language or graphics, or be sexually suggestive.

    A clothes closet operated by the PTA at San Juan High School accepts donations of clean, used clothing and provides it to district families upon request or school referral. To donate or request clothing, call (916) 728-3106.
