Dress Code: An Important Part of the Educational Climate

The District has designed a Code of Conduct that includes a student dress code. The dress code was written with two major features in mind; safety for all students and hygiene concerns. Beginning in January 2024, all elements that are stated in the Code of Conduct will be enforced. It is important that the school community and our students respect and support this policy.

Some highlights of this policy:

  1. Certain body parts must always be covered for all students. Clothes must be worn in a way such that by sight or outline, genitals, buttocks, breasts, and nipples are fully covered with opaque fabric. All items listed in “must wear” category below must meet the basic principle.

  2.   Students must wear, while following the basic principle of Section 1 above:

    • A shirt (with fabric in front, back, and on the sides under the arms)

    • Pants/jeans or the equivalent (skirt, sweatpants, leggings, dress, shorts)

    • Shoes

  3. Students cannot wear:

    • Violent language or images.

    • Images or language depicting/suggesting drugs, alcohol, vaping, paraphernalia

    • Bullet proof vest, body armor, tactical gear, or facsimile.

    • Hate speech or symbols, profanity, pornography, or sexually suggestive clothing.

    • Images or language that creates a hostile or intimidating environment

    • Swimsuits (except as required in class or athletic practice).

    • Accessories or garments that could be considered dangerous or used as a weapon.

    • Hoods or hats, with the exception of religious, medically necessary, or cultural headwear.

  4. Consequences

    • Modify their appearance by covering or removing the offending item.

    • Replace it with an acceptable item.

    • Students who refuse or repeatedly fail to cooperate with the dress code expectations will be considered insubordinate.

The dress code will be enforced uniformly and consistently throughout the school year.
