Expectations for students’ dress and appearance at school are grounded in the belief that school is the children’s place of work. As such, students must dress appropriately for their work at school to ensure maximum engagement in learning. Expectations for dress apply to any school related activity or function. As in past years, student dress and appearance cannot be disruptive to the educational process.
The following clothing shall not be worn in school (in-person or remote)
- Headgear - hats, visors, sweatbands, bandanas or hoods except to allow for established religious custom or when required for the health and safety of an individual
- Clothing that reference drugs, alcohol and/or tobacco products
- Clothing with vulgar, offensive or sexually suggestive remarks/images
- Clothing that reveals undergarments or midriff
Students whose dress or appearance is deemed disruptive to the educational process will be asked to change to more suitable dress that meets the expectations of dressing for the work of school. Repeated dress code violations will result in parent notification.
