A safe and disciplined learning environment is essential to a quality education program. District- wide standards on student attire are intended to ensure that all students are treated equitably and benefit from a safe learning environment. The Board of Education recognizes that students have a right to express themselves through dress and personal appearance and the responsibility for the dress and appearance of students generally rests with the student and their guardians. However, students shall not wear apparel that is deemed disruptive or potentially disruptive to the classroom environment or to the maintenance of an overall safe and equitable school environment for all students. Students are expected to dress appropriately for all school activities. The following general guidelines will be in effect:

  1. Shoes, sandals, or boots must be worn in the buildings in order to avoid injury and disease.
  2. Students must wear tops (shirts) and bottoms (pants, sweat pants, shorts, skirts, dresses, leggings)
  3. Traditionally known private parts of the body must be covered with non-transparent material. Sunglasses, bandanas and/or hats may only be worn inside the building with permission from an administrator
  4. The following will not be allowed: Any clothing, paraphernalia, grooming, jewelry, hair coloring, accessories, or body adornments that are or contain any advertisements, symbols, words, slogans, patches, or pictures that:
    1. refer to drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or weapons
    2. are of a sexual nature
    3. by virtue of color, arrangement, trademark, or other attribute denote membership in gangs which advocate drug use, violence, or disruptive behavior
    4. are obscene, profane, vulgar, lewd, or legally libelous
    5. threaten the safety or welfare of any person
    6. promote any activity prohibited by the student code of conduct
    7. are racist in nature or include derogatory comments or slurs against groups of people
    8. otherwise disrupt the teaching-learning process
  5. All middle and high school students are required to have in their possession an unaltered school issued photo identification card (ID) during school hours, or at such times, locations, and activities specifically identified by the building principal.
