DRESS AND GROOMING

The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize 
safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming 
standards, provided that they comply with the following:


Hair

 No distracting items stuck in the hair.
 No nets on the head.
 No sideburns below the earlobes.
 Hair must be clean and well-groomed.
 No pins or curlers.
 Hair is not to cover the eyes.
 Boy’s hair is not to extend past the bottom of a dress shirt collar.
 No distracting hairstyles (unnatural color, Mohawk, Fauxhauk, Spiked, etc.).
 No symbols or initials are to be cut into the hair.

Footwear*
 No house shoes are permitted. Tennis shoes or fully closed shoes are recommended for safety and comfort
 in P.E. classes.

 No hats, head coverings (boys and girls) or headbands (boys only) are to be worn during school hours.

Shirts

 Shirts must be either collared or crew-necked.

           pocket opening of their pants when worn at the waist.

 No clothing is permitted which advertises Playboy, tobacco, alcohol, prohibited substances, vulgar or
          obscene topics, or that which implies any of the above.

 Tops (shirts, blouses, etc.) must overlap waist bands so that NO midriff is showing at ANY TIME.
 Clothing which reveals underwear or cleavage is prohibited.

Other Clothing

 NO “sagging” of pants or shorts is allowed. Pants and shorts are to be worn at the natural waistline.
 Any clothing which reveals underwear or cleavage is prohibited.48
 Clothing which is torn or ripped is not permitted. Pants which are frayed are allowed as long as
           no skin is visible through the frayed areas when standing or 
sitting.

Earrings/Piercing
 Boys are prohibited from wearing earrings or studs.
 Body piercing, other than ears, is prohibited.

Other Guidelines

 Students are to be clean shaven.
 Students are required to keep themselves clean and free of body odor.
 **Pants, shorts and dresses must be at or below the knee.
 Tattoos with lewd writing, gang-related, obscene or offensive pictures or emblems must be covered.

**Exceptions: Designated school events approved by the Principal

If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the 
student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student may
be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until 
a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school. Repeated offenses may 
result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
