Students are NOT to wear:
· Clothing that carries symbols endorsing or implying the use of substances not legally available to minors.
· Clothing or jewelry that has profane, sexual, illegal or violent connotations
· Spiked jewelry, wallet chains and extremely long un-looped belts
· Bare feet or slippers in any public place
· Clothing that is transparent, distracting, or disruptive to the school environment. Some examples include:
o shirts that reveal the midriff (shirts/tops must be long enough to tuck in and stay tucked)
o clothing that does not cover the torso on the front, back and/or sides,
o shorts, dresses, skirts or slits in skirts that do not extend past the thumb tip when arms are at the side, fingers extended straight down the leg and the thumb parallel with the hand.
o halter tops or spaghetti straps, or shirts that reveal cleavage
· Hats, sweatbands, stocking caps or sunglasses inside any building
· Visible undergarments or pajamas (bra straps, sleeveless undershirts, or underpants)
· Extremely oversized clothing
· Any item that is considered gang related including hairnets, do-rags, bandanas, colors or combinations of colors. Gang related items tend to change throughout the school year. Police Department advises school Administrators when such changes take place; subsequently, Administrators notify students of changes in the dress code.
Note: The Administrators and faculty possess the right to evaluate any clothing for health and safety concerns and may determine on a case-by-case basis that particular clothing presents a potential safety hazard or educational disruption. Those students who are dressed inappropriately must change to more appropriate attire and will receive proper disciplinary consequences.
