Wearing the appropriate clothing is important so that clothes do
not become a distraction from your studies. Hats, do-rags, scarves, sunglasses,
cropped shirts or tank tops (one inch thick straps at a minimum), torn
clothing, "sagging" pants, and ads for alcohol, drugs, and violence
are distracting and are not permitted at school. Students in the elementary
school are not permitted to wear make-up.
We do not permit the use of any clothing, jewelry, or grooming
styles that may indicate or imply membership or affiliation with gangs. We will
not tolerate any activities, speech, or expression that could physically,
mentally, or emotionally harm students. Any student wearing, carrying, or
displaying gang paraphernalia or who is demonstrating behavior or using
gestures that symbolize gang membership or are threatening to others will be
subject to school discipline. Students not following dress code will be asked
to change. If no change of clothes is available, parents will be called to
request a change of clothes be provided.
Shoes with soles designed for outside use should be worn to
enable a student to fully participate in PE and other physical activities.
Shoes with roller blades/wheels are not permitted.
