|In preparation for life after secondary education, students should learn that the context of the situation may dictate the appropriateness of dress and personal appearance. Students and parents should remember these highlights when planning school outfits:
• Oversized or excessively tight clothing is not permitted. Pants must fit at the waist and in the seat. Shoes must be visible from all lines of sight. Holes in pants or shirts will not be permitted. Shirts longer than the bottom seam of the back pants pocket must be tucked in.
• Undergarments must not be visible.
• Students at all grade levels may wear shorts, but “short shorts” are forbidden. Garments such as skirts, dresses, and shorts, must be longer than the tips of the fingers when the student’s arms, hands, and fingers are extended down the student’s leg.
• Halter tops, tank tops, spaghetti-strap type dresses, dresses with sleeves cut off, torn or “holey” apparel, fishnet, sheer, or other see-through type dresses shall not be worn.
• Garments must cover entire back, cleavage, chest, and stomach.
• Hats, caps, visors, bandanas, or headgear of any kind are not to be worn in school.
• Elementary school students should not wear heelys, flip-flops, or similar footwear.
• Piercings are allowed in the earlobe only. Boys may wear one small loop earring or stud in each ear. Body piercing of the nose, eyebrow, tongue, or any other visible area other than the ear will not be allowed.
• Visible tattoos of any kind are not permitted.
• Hair should be kept neat, clean, and out of eyes. Only natural hair colors will be permitted. Styles which call undue attention to the wearer (such as mohawks, etchings, etc.), or are disruptive will not be permitted.
• Picture IDs are required to be worn at all times during school hours by all high school students while on campus.
The complete Dress and Grooming Guide is in the Student Handbook and Code of Conduct.
