School Dress Code Updated

Updated Nov. 12, 2016, and to be reflected in the 2017-2018 Family Handbook.

Dress Code & Appropriate Clothing Policy

We are committed to empowering students to grow as responsible decision-makers. Therefore, the primary responsibility for a student’s attire resides with the student and parents / guardians.

We require students to wear appropriate clothing when attending school, which means wearing an appropriate and opaque top, bottom, and footwear. We have three basic standards to help guide students and families in making appropriate clothing decisions for school.

All clothing worn to school:

  • must provide for a focused and active learning environment.
  • must be comfortable and assure safety in the classroom and on the playground.
  • must reflect the values of respect and responsibility, and exhibit due consideration for the sensitivities of others.

Any images or language depicting or referring to violence, hate speech, illegal activity or profanity are prohibited.

Appropriate shoes for outdoor and P.E. activities are expected and required. Indoor P.E. requires clean shoes solely for use within the gym.

Classes that include attire as part of the curriculum may include assignment-specific dress as determined by the teacher.

We encourage all students to keep a change of clothing in their backpack or locker for emergencies.

If, in the judgement of a teacher or administrator, these standards are not being followed, this will be communicated to the student and/or the student’s parent(s)/legal guardians(s). The student may be required to change clothes before returning to class. Should a student continually break these standards, disciplinary or remedial action will be taken.
