- The dress down dress code should be followed.
Dress Down Dress Code:
On occasion, the Principal will allow a “Dress Down Day” day for purposes of school-wide incentive or fundraising. On “Dress Down Days”, students may wear clothing other than the prescribed uniform. These days, students have the option to dress casually, including wearing jeans and T-shirts. Please adhere to the following dress code rules:
- T-shirts are permitted; however, no offensive or suggestive material on any piece of clothing is allowed.
- No sleeveless tops or shirts, low necklines, spaghetti straps, midriff-baring or revealing tops or open-back shirts may be worn.
- Modest and appropriate is the goal (no see-through material, no midriff or underwear showing).
- Overly short apparel is not permitted. Skirts, skorts and shorts must be at least fingertip length, even if leggings are worn under a skirt.
- Tennis shoes and athletic shoes are permitted; however, Crocs, flip-flops, mules, open back shoes, high-heeled shoes and sandals are not allowed due to safety concerns.
- No low necklines or tight-fitting tops, pants, shorts, etc.
- No cut-off shorts, frays, or clothing with holes/slits (One inch above the knee is the standard guideline). If holes exist above the 1-inch guideline, no skin should be visible.
- No sagging or bagging of pants or leggings, jeggings, exercise, or lycra stretch pants allowed.
- Hats and sunglasses may not be worn inside the building.
