Teachers have the right and responsibility to request that a student not wear an article of clothing that is disruptive to the educational process.
- Students are expected to dress in a manner that is appropriate for school. Any type of dress which disrupts the educational process or constitutes a threat to the safety and/or health of another person will not be permitted. A general rule to consider is that if you are in doubt as to whether or not you should wear a particular type of clothing or accessory to school, do not wear it.
- Some of the items prohibited are: (This is a sample list not meant to be all inclusive.)
- Wallet chains or any chains in general, studded or spiked wristbands, dog collars, or any type of accessory that could cause harm to oneself or another person.
- Clothing that is too revealing (such as bare midriffs, see-through clothing, low-cut tops, bathing suits, visible undergarments, very short shorts, pants, skirts or dresses worn below the hips.)
- Clothing that is disruptive because of displaying sexual drawings or language, suggestive gestures, racial statements, gang involvement, statements with double meanings, alcohol, drug or tobacco messages.
- Hats, hoods, or sunglasses while in the building.
Students who are referred to the office because they are in violation of the dress code will not be allowed to attend classes until compliance is reached.
