We understand that dress code is a matter of personal opinion and style. To insure a healthy academic environment, we must advise that students dress appropriately so there will be no distractions from learning. Measures will be taken to correct the dress code violation through the use of t-shirts, zip-ties, etc. so students can return to class. However, there will also be consequences for violating the dress code.
- Shorts and skirts are permitted. However, they shall be 3 ¼ inches (vertical length of any standard size credit card, driver’s license or student id) from the top of the kneecap while standing. No exceptions for leggings.
- Hats and hoods are only allowed in the parking lot or outside of the building. No covering (including sweat bands, combs, skull caps, stocking caps or do-rags) is allowed on the head inside of the building at anytime for females or males.
- Clothing that displays messages or illustrations of a profane or crude nature, or advertisements for drugs, alcohol, or any illegal substance shall not be allowed.
- Holes located 3 ¼ inches above the top of the kneecap must not reveal skin and student should wear tights or shorts underneath. Absolutely no holes allowed in the groin, buttocks or hip area.
- Pajamas and house shoes are not allowed without permission.
- T-shirts must be worn with jerseys and sleeveless t-shirts are not allowed.
- Only blouses and shirts that have 2 inches (the horizontal length of the student id) of the shoulder covered are acceptable.
- Blouses and shirts must be long enough to keep the midriff, back and stomach covered on a consistent basis (even while seated). Students shall not expose skin on the back that is more than 3 ¼ inches below the neck line.
- Clothing that reveals cleavage is not allowed.
- Sagging is not allowed. Pants are to be worn above the hips.
Any clothing, jewelry, accessory, or hairstyle that the administration deems as inappropriate in an educational setting, presenting a safety concern, or that causes a disruption in the educational process will be prohibited. The final decision on dress code matters rests with the building principal or designee of the principal.
