Dress Code

Grades K to grade 5 may dress in any style they desire, but there are some restrictions. Clothing may not disrupt other students. Clothing may not be excessively distracting (no provocative messages). Some important rules include:

  • Sandals are permitted if they have ankle straps

  • Shorts, skirts and dresses must be knee length

  • Shoulders should be covered (no tank tops or spaghetti straps)

  • No hats or kerchief/bandanas inside the building, unless head coverings are required for religious purposes.

 

The following outlines specific clothing/garments that are prohibited:

  • No clothing designed or altered to expose undergarments or parts of the body except arms or legs, as defined throughout these rules, is allowed.

  • No purses, handbag or cross body bags larger than 8½” x 11” (sheet of notebook paper)

  • Because theft or loss is a school security concern, the wearing of precious jewelry in our schools is prohibited. The following are prohibited:

    • Metal chains, ropes, necklaces, bracelets or rings

    • Large or extravagant earrings

    • Multi-fingered rings

  • Jewelry that is allowed includes:

    • Non-visible, metal religious items

    • Medical identification bracelets

  • No undergarments worn as outerwear are allowed.

  • No apparel printed with vulgar statements or statements promoting the use of drugs, alcohol, or violence is allowed.

  • Slippers, thongs, “Heelys”, and flip-flops are not allowed.

  • No hats or bandanas are allowed.

  • No pajama-type attire, undershirts, or other bedtime attire is allowed.
