Student Responsibilities and Rights – Student Dress Code (Regulation 2613)
All students are expected to dress appropriately for a PreK-6 educational environment. Any clothing that interferes with or disrupts the educational environment is unacceptable. Clothing with language or images that are vulgar, discriminatory, or obscene or clothing that promotes illegal or violent conduct, such as gang symbols, the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia, or clothing that contains threats is prohibited.
Clothing should fit, be neat and clean, and conform to standards of safety, good taste, and decency. Clothing that exposes cleavage, private parts, the midriff, or undergarments, or that is otherwise sexually provocative, is prohibited. Examples of prohibited clothing include, but are not limited to: sagging or low-cut pants, low-cut necklines that show cleavage, tube tops, halter tops, backless blouses or blouses with only ties in the back, studded belts, chain belts, clothing constructed of see-through materials, and head coverings unless required for religious or medical purposes.
Parents or guardians of students requiring accommodation for religious beliefs, disabilities, or other good causes should contact the principal. Students not complying with this code will be asked to cover the non-complying clothing, change clothes, or go home. Repeated infractions will result in disciplinary action.
Students should wear tennis, gym, or running shoes designed to provide support, fit securely, and prevent injury when engaged in gym class or other physical activity. The wearing of shoes that contain wheels in the heel, better known as “Heelys” is prohibited.
Our school suggests:
Clothing must be safe, comfortable and not restrictive to learning activities. Hats and caps, except for those worn for religious reasons, should not be worn inside the school.
Shoes should offer proper support and protection, as students are involved in PE and recess activities daily.
Short shorts, short skirts, (less than fingertip length) or tight skirts are inappropriate school attire.
Tops should have straps which are at least three fingers wide, no spaghetti straps.
Messages, logos, and other visual images on tee shirts should convey age-appropriate messages to K-6 students.
Any questions regarding student attire should be address to administration.
