All students are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to dress appropriately for school and school functions. Students and their parents have the primary responsibility for acceptable student dress and appearance. Teachers and all other District personnel should exemplify and reinforce acceptable student dress and help students develop an understanding of appropriate appearance in the school setting.
- Dress in a manner that is safe, appropriate, and that will not disrupt or interfere with the educational process, or damage District property. Sunglasses should not be worn in any building.
- Ensure that undergarments are completely covered with outer clothing.
- Wear safe and functional footwear at all times.
- Not wear hats, caps, hoods, or other head coverings in school or in the classrooms except for a medical or religious purpose, or on days designated by the District administration.
- Not wear clothing that displays anything that is vulgar, obscene, libelous, or that denigrates others.
- Not wear clothing that promotes or endorses the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs, or that encourages other illegal or violent activities.
Each building principal or his/her designee is responsible for informing all students and their parents of the student dress code at the beginning of the school year and of any revisions to the dress code made during the school year.
Students who violate the student dress code may be required to modify their appearance by covering or removing the offending item, if necessary or practical, and replacing it with an acceptable item. Any student who refuses to do so may be subject to discipline, up to and including a suspension for the day. Any student who repeatedly fails to comply with the dress code may be subject to further discipline, up to and including out-of-school suspension.
