Dress Code
For safety, health, and welfare reasons students will dress properly for school. Parents/guardians will be called for a change of clothes when necessary. (AR 5132 – Dress & Grooming)

 Shoes and socks must be worn at all times. No sandals, thongs, high or wedge-heeled shoes, boots, party shoes with leather soles, or backless shoes. Shoes with roller skates attached (Heely’s) are only allowed if the wheels are removed. Athletic shoes are the preferred school shoes; students should be safe and comfortable for active outdoor play and Physical Education.

 Clothing, jewelry, and personal items (backpacks, water bottles, etc.) shall be free of writing, pictures, or other insignia, which are crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, which bear drug, alcohol or tobacco company advertising, promotions & likenesses, or which advocate racial, ethnic, or religious prejudice.

 Hats, caps, and other head coverings shall be removed indoors and may be worn outdoors only. The only exceptions are head coverings of a religious nature.

 Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times. See-through or fishnet fabrics, halter tops, off the shoulder or low-cut tops, spaghetti straps on tops are not acceptable, bare midriffs and skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh are prohibited.

 Gang related apparel/sign/insignias are prohibited at all times.

 Bike shorts, leggings or tights can be worn under skirts or dresses, but may not be worn alone. Tank tops should fit snugly; armholes should not be so large that the body is exposed. Excessively baggy pants are not permitted. Undergarments may not be visible.

 Hoop earrings are not permitted for safety reasons. Stud or other small earrings are acceptable. It is advisable to keep valuable jewelry at home.
Most dress code violations can be solved easily by having the student put on a sweater or by turning the inappropriate clothing article inside out. If it is a violation that requires a change of clothing, such as baggy pants or unsafe shoes, the student will be referred to the office and the parents will be called to bring a change of clothing.
