The Board of Education believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. The Board expects students to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothes that are suitable for the school activities in which they participate. Students' clothing must not present a health or safety hazard or a distraction which would interfere with the educational process. (Board Policy 5132)
In addition, the following guidelines shall apply to all regular school activities:
- Clothing, jewelry and personal items (backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles, etc.) shall be free of writing, pictures or any other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, which bear drug, alcohol or tobacco company advertising, promotions and likenesses, or which advocate racial, ethnic or religious prejudice.
- Hats, caps and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors.
- Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times. See-through or fish-net fabrics, halter tops, off-the-shoulder or low-cut tops, bare midriffs and skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh are prohibited.
Students who violate the student dress code will be asked to modify their appearance and may be sent home.
Students may not wear hats or hoodies over their heads when indoors (but hats are acceptable to be worn outdoors for sun protection).
In summary, students' clothing or appearance must not present a health or safety hazard or a distraction which would interfere with the educational process.
***It is strongly recommended that students in kindergarten and first grade keep a simple change of clothing at school just in case of occasional bathroom accidents or lunchtime spills.
