District Dress Code
The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent
disruption, and minimize safety hazards. The District prohibits any clothing or
grooming that in the principal’s judgment may reasonably be expected to cause
disruption of or interference with normal school operations.
Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards,
provided that they comply with the following:
* Students shall be dressed and groomed in a manner that is clean and neat and that will not be a health or safety hazard to themselves or others.
• The District prohibits pictures, emblems, or writings on clothing that are lewd,
offensive, vulgar, or obscene OR advertise or depict tobacco products, alcoholic
beverages, drugs, or any other prohibited substance.
• The District prohibits improperly fitting clothing; baggy pants, oversized shirts,
elongated armholes, overly tight garments, and clothes that improperly expose body
• The District prohibits tops that are strapless or backless, that have spaghetti straps, or
low cut necklines.
• The District prohibits shorts and skirts that do not extend beyond the fingertips when
arms are extended at one’s side.
• The District prohibits any gang-associated clothing or colors.
• The District prohibits hats, caps, bandanas, and do-rags except for religious or
• The District prohibits flip-flops at the elementary and middle school level.
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 will 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.
