DRESS STANDARDS WHILE ATTENDING
dress need not be a major issue in student's education. The parents should be
as concerned as the school staff in the fact that the student's dress reflects
his/her pride in school and his/her family.
The school environment is part of their preparation for the future, so
we have traditionally maintained that a student comes to school in much the
same dress he/she is expected to wear in a typical business environment.
The following ARE EXAMPLES OF INAPPROPRIATE
DRESS and ARE NOT TO BE WORN AT SCHOOL:
- pants worn
below the waistline;
exposing midriff area, tube tops, tops exposing cleavage, and backless tops;
- T-shirts or
other clothing or any jewelry with vulgar words, pictures, or phrases that
promote sex, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gang activity or advocate violence
dirty or wet clothing;
that are not outer wear quality.
- Hats must
be worn with the bill forward.
If it is
determined that the student is wearing inappropriate clothing, he/she will be
required to change into the appropriate clothing. If a student is asked to change their
clothing, call home for assistance, or require time away from class to change, the
time missed will be recorded as an unexcused absence for the time missed. The
decision concerning appropriateness of dress remains with the
administration. Repeat offenders will be
considered to be in defiance of authority and the appropriate penalty
shall be imposed.
Regardless of color, any article of
clothing displaying gang colors, or affiliation in any manner, is prohibited.
