Dress Code

Appropriate Student Dress

The district’s student attire policy addresses the lack of attire, or personal grooming which creates a danger to health or safety as well as attire that causes a disruption to the educational process, including, but not limited to, bearing a lewd, vulgar, or obscene message, promoting products or activities that are illegal for use by minors, or displaying objectionable emblems, signs, words, objects, or pictures communicating a message that is racist, sexist, or otherwise derogatory to a protected minority group or which connotes gang membership. Consequences: Student conference; parent notification.
