The District encourages students to take pride in their attire as it relates to the school setting.  Students should dress in a manner that, in addition to the following guidelines, takes into consideration the educational environment, safety, health, and welfare of self and others.

●  Only shorts and skirts that are appropriate in length may be worn.

●  Bare midriffs, halter tops, and spaghetti straps are not acceptable past the third grade.

●  Bare feet are never acceptable.  In the interests of student safety, shoes must be worn at all times.  Closed shoes are to be worn for any type of physical activity, such as physical education, et cetera.

●  Jewelry shall not be worn if it presents a safety hazard to self and/or others.

●  Profane or defamatory writing on clothing or jewelry is not acceptable.

●  No bandannas of any color, size, or shape may be carried or displayed in any classroom or at any school activity.   This also includes simulations of anything representing "colors."

●  No hats may be worn in a classroom, except for properly approved occupational safety headgear required for special classes.

●  Gang-related personalization is not permitted on hats, on items of clothing, or on one's person.

●  Obscene language or symbols, or symbols of drugs, sex, or alcohol on clothing are expressly prohibited.

Exceptions for special activities or health considerations may be preapproved by the administrator.

Students who volunteer for extracurricular activities, such as athletics, band, chorus, et cetera, are subject to the standards of dress as defined by the sponsors of such activities.
