• Dress and Grooming

    The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, instill discipline, prevent disruption, avoid safety hazards, and teach respect for authority. The student, and parent may determine the student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with this dress code.

    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. This prohibition includes clothing, accessories, or body art that is lewd, offensive, racist, vulgar, or obscene or advertises or depicts tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or any other substance prohibited under FNCF(LEGAL).

    Student Dress Standards

    • Hair color or style may not cause a disruption to the learning environment.

    • Shorts, dresses, and skirts must be at least mid-thigh in length.

    • Holes or slits in garments must be located below mid-thigh. • Pants, jeans, and shorts must be worn at the waist, i.e. no sagging.

    • Tank top straps should be at least the width of a student ID.

    Students may not wear

    • Sleepwear such as pajamas and/or slippers.

    • Sunglasses in the building.

    • Bandeaus, spaghetti straps, halter tops, sleeveless undershirts, or sheer clothing.

    • Tops which expose the midriff or are excessively low cut.

    • Clothing or accessories which indicate gang affiliation, or could be construed to be gangrelated.

    • Oversized or bulky coats or jackets, or full-length coats or jackets like trench coats or dusters.

    • Sheer or see-through clothing.

    The principal will be the final authority concerning dress code violations. Students who are considered to be in violation of the dress code will be advised by a campus administrator and given an opportunity to comply. While waiting to correct a dress code violation, the student may wait in the office, return to class (if not a severe violation), or report to ISS as instructed by a campus administrator.
