Dress Code

Just a reminder: you’re “on the job” at school. Students are expected to come to school appropriately dressed. If school administrators determine that a student’s attire is inappropriate, they have the right to require a change of clothing and may send the student home. As much as possible, dress code standards will be applied equally to both men and women.

For example, no one may wear headwear in the building during the school day.

See county portion (below) for specific dress code regulations.
--Shorts, skirts, and dresses must be at least mid thigh length
--No backless shirts are permitted
--No pajama pants are permitted
--No blankets are to be brought to school
--Undergarments are not to be worn as outer garments (no bra straps showing)
--multiple straps equal to one inch does not meet dress code
--Pants are to be worn at the waist No sagging
