Don't Get Sent Home!!
We've updated our online handbook to include the latest trends in fashion :) Parents, remember, we are strict on our dress code to protect your children! Please look over our dress code and help us out at home. Mrs. Mullinax shared our policy with you during Open House, but here it is in black and white...and a few other colors, to make the important stuff pop out! Here's a hint, if it's in color, it's important and will get you sent home!
In general, the following will be unacceptable:
short shorts; mini-skirts; fad clothing with holes, tears, or rips; bathing apparel or beach wear; pajamas and/or house shoes; gym shorts; cut off sweats; exposed backs, fronts or midriffs; bicycle shorts; hats, caps, visors, bandannas, or sunglasses; tank tops/spaghetti straps; net jerseys without a shirt underneath; gang clothing; or garments with suggestive slogans or pictures, or alcohol or tobacco advertisements, or that may be disruptive to the educational process.
The waistband of pants/shorts must be worn at the waist, no “sagging”. All male students will wear their shirts tucked in pants/shorts and males will not wear sleeveless shirts.
Female students will not wear shorts, dresses, or skirts more than two inches above the knee. Sheer skirts will be judged on the length of the solid under skirt, not the see-through fabric.
Pants must have pockets. Leggings are NOT pants. No leggings, yoga pants, sweat pants, or tights unless your top is two inches above the knee or longer.
Tops must have sleeves.
Students in violation of the dress code will be asked to call home for proper clothing to be brought to them (students may be placed in ISS while waiting). The administration will make the final decision on the appropriateness of a student’s dress. Parents will be held ultimately responsible for the student’s dress. Continued violations may result in other disciplinary action.
