The Board of Education expects student dress and grooming to be neat, clean and in good taste so that each student may share in promoting a positive, healthy and safe atmosphere within the school district.  For reasons of health and safety, students are required to wear shoes at all times. The primary purpose of these dress guidelines is to ensure a school atmosphere where optimal student learning can take place.  With the frequent changes in clothing styles and fashion, the delineation of specific examples inappropriate school clothing can only serve as a guideline.

When in the judgment of the principal, a student’s appearance or mode of dress disrupts the educational process, or constitutes a threat to health or safety; the student may be required to make modifications.  Extremes in wearing apparel or personal appearance that the administrations feels disrupts the learning process or interferes with the intended function of the school will not be acceptable. The school may restrict any student from attending class or school activities when that student’s dress, general appearance, and/or conduct creates safety, health, or discipline problems.

The following are examples of clothing that is deemed inappropriate for school and WILL NOT BE ALLOWED:
