Good grooming and proper dress are essential in establishing an appropriate, safe school environment for learning. Clothing should be clean, neat, and comfortable. The following are guidelines that should be observed in elementary school:
- Hats may be worn for outside activities. Baseball caps are permitted; however, they do not provide adequate protection for head, neck, and ears. A wide brimmed hat would offer better protection from the sun's rays.
- No oversized clothing. This will include pants and shirts. Pants should fit properly in length and at the waist. Sagging is not allowed. Shirts and Blouses must be tucked in unless they are shorter in length than the student's extended fingertips
- Shorts may be worn, but a desired degree of modesty must be maintained.
- Vulgar, suggestive, profane, or violence-oriented slogans or pictures on clothing will not be permitted. Included are shirts that exhibit violent messages from wrestling figures. Clothing that promotes products or activities inappropriate for children such as alcohol or tobacco-related advertisements may not be worn.
- Bare midriff style and/or tank tops are not allowed.
- Shoes must be appropriate for P.E. and recess.
- Any other attire or grooming that is perceived by the administration, as being detrimental to the education process will not be allowed.
- Visible body piercing shall be limited to ear piercing only. All other visible piercings, including retainers, are prohibited.
- Tattoos that are allowed to be visible will be at the discretion of the campus administrator. Tattoos that are considered to be gang related, vulgar or offensive will not be permitted to be visible.
- Students may not wear unusual costumes that attract attention and detract from the learning atmosphere. This includes unusual hairstyles or hair coloring.
The principal shall determine if any item is disruptive to the learning environment or creates a safety concern. It shall be dealt with on an individual basis.
