Dress Code-Free Dress Guidelines

 

 

DRESS GUIDELINES FOR SPECIAL NON-UNIFORM DAYS/EVENTS


1)      Students must comply with the established Mason Dress Code. This means that clothing and accessories must:

         a.      Not include rips, tears, holes;

         b.      Not be made of, or including, transparent, mesh, lace, or fishnet material;

         c.       Not contain any logos, pictures, or words that are obscene, vulgar, lewd, indecent, or plainly offensive or that promote drug or alcohol use;

         d.      Not be likely to cause a material and substantial disruption of the educational environment; and

         e.      Not pose a threat to the safety of the wearer or others (i.e. be a symbol of gang affiliation, contain spikes, etc.)

2)     Tops/dresses must cover a student’s shoulders, back, and chest in the same way that a Mason Dress Code compliant polo would.  Wearing a jacket, sweater, or a shirt that meets these requirements over another top or dress that does not meet these guidelines is allowed; however, the jacket, sweater or shirt must be worn for the duration of the day/event.

3)     Pants/shorts/dresses/skirts must fall within three (3) inches of the knee, consistent with existing Mason Dress Code.  Leggings are not pants and may only be worn if they are under shorts/dresses/skirts.

4)     Hats, hoods, or other head coverings are not to be worn in the building at any time, including dances, unless a student has obtained permission to wear a head covering as a religious accommodation.

5)     Shoes must be worn at all times.  For a school day, shoes should be appropriate for all school activities and worn at all times.

6)     When the school day or event has a theme, students should make a reasonable effort to match their clothing choice and style to the announced theme.
