Dress Code

High School Dress Code and Grooming
High School students are not required to wear a school assigned uniform for the 2021-2022 School Year unless required by a specific program, discipline, or academy. However, students must dress appropriately and adhere to the policy described below.

Appropriate Sizes
Students shall wear clothing of appropriate size. Parents are expected to buy proper sized clothing. The size of shirts and pants shall be appropriate to the student’s body size and shall not be unduly oversized or undersized. Skinny pants, tights, or leggings that substitute as pants are not acceptable. Tights and leggings must be worn under a skirt that meets the length requirement (no more than 3 inches above the knee) of the dress code.

Unacceptable Attire
Students are not allowed to wear clothing, jewelry (including body piercing jewelry and “grills”), buttons, haircuts, tattoos, or other attire with markings that are offensive, suggestive, disruptive, or indecent. Examples of unacceptable attire are listed below.
● Clothing associated with gangs (including bandanas of any color)
● Clothing encouraging the use of tobacco, drugs, alcohol, or violence
● Clothing associated with discrimination based on age, color, handicap, national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, race, religion, or sex

All skirts and shorts must meet the required length (no more than 3 inches above the knee).
● Intentionally altered clothing or unbuttoned and ill-fitted garments are not acceptable
● Ill-fitted garments include, but are not limited to garments that are too small or too large, transparent, mesh, or see- through. Skin tight clothing is not allowed. Clothing must be completely buckled, belted, buttoned, or fastened

● Hats, headgear (wave caps, bonnets, hoodies, bandanas, and shower caps), or any head covering is not allowed except when approved by the principal—exceptions will be considered in the case of headwear or scarves worn as a part of a student’s religious practice or for documented medical reasons
