Dress Code

Appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. Student dress policy is intended to create a positive school climate of respect for self and others. Appropriate dress and appearance projects a positive image of seriousness and reflects respect for teaching and learning. Being mindful of one's appearance is preparation for future school, work, and career success. Students must conform to the general dress code policy of the school. Students are expected to dress appropriately for a preK-12 educational environment. Clothing that significantly interferes with or disrupts the educational environment is unacceptable, unless protected under freedom of speech laws or board policy. Clothing, jewelry, and personal items (gym bags, backpacks, fanny packs, 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, drug paraphernalia, or 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 will allow students to wear sun protective clothing, including but not limited to hats, for outdoor use during the school day.
