Dress Code

DRESS AND GROOMING
The schoolís dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, instills discipline, prevent disruption, avoid safety hazards, and teach respect for authority. Students shall be dressed and groomed in a manner that is clean and neat and will not be a health and safety hazard to themselves or others. The school prohibits any clothing or grooming that in the principalís judgment may reasonably be expected to cause disruption of or interference with normal school operations. The student and parent may determine the studentís personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the general guidelines set out above and with the student dress code as outlined.
If the principal or the principalís designee determines that a studentís grooming or dress violates the dress code, the student shall be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student shall be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day or until the problem is corrected. Repeated dress code offenses will result in progressive disciplinary action.

Dress Code Guidelines:
1. The length of shorts, skirts and dresses will follow the ďfingertipĒ rule. When a student is standing in relaxed stance with his/her hands at their side, no part of the shorts, skirt or dress should be shorter than where the middle fingertip lies. All shorts, skirts, and dresses must be at least fingertip length (slit in skirt must be fingertip in length). This means that when you are standing with your arms by your sides and with your shoulders relaxed, the entire hemline of the garment must be even with the tips of your fingers or longer. This includes but is not limited to athletic shorts and wind shorts. Leggings and/or yoga style pants must be accompanied by fingertip length shirts. Formfitting/skin tight dresses or skirts are not permitted.
2. Cheerleading uniforms must comply with length guidelines or be worn only during pep rallies and games. Leggings must be worn with cheerleading uniforms during the school day, except during pep rallies.
3. Appropriate undergarments shall be worn. Any clothing that exposes undergarments is prohibited. This
includes bag or sag pants that reveal underwear.
4. Exposure of breast cleavage and midriff is prohibited. Clothing which exposes the midriff at any time
during the normal course of classroom activities is prohibited (i.e. seated at desk, writing on board, raising
of the hand, etc.)
5. Shoulders must be covered by material the minimum width of 2 inches. No spaghetti strap shirts or dresses shall be worn unless an undershirt that meets the minimum width of 2 inches is worn under the spaghetti strap shirt or dress. Backs must be covered (razorback tank tops do not meet this criteria).
6. No sleeveless shirts for boys.
7. All students must wear shoes. Shoes with rubber, steel, or hard plastic cleats, such as those used in little league football, baseball, etc. are NOT to be worn at school. For safety purposes, shoes with removable wheels and heels over 2 inches are NOT permitted. Appropriate rubber-soled
tennis shoes (athletic type) for P.E. are required.
8. No house shoes or pajamas shall be allowed at school.
9. No hats or any other forms of head coverings will be allowed on boys or girls in any part of the building. If a hat is worn, it will be taken up and returned at an administratorís discretion or parents may come to the school and claim the hat. The school will not be responsible if a confiscated hat is lost.
10. Clothing that advertises alcohol, tobacco, drugs or illegal activities is prohibited. In addition, clothing that advertises activities that are suggestive, vulgar or otherwise inappropriate are prohibited.
11. Pants must fit at the waist. If jeans or pants are loose at the waist, a belt must be worn to secure the pants at waist level. Pants must not exceed 2 inches below the navel. Any part of the pants cannot extend to the floor.
12. Exposed facial or body piercings other than the ear shall be limited to studs (no loops, spikes, etc.). If the size or quantity of studs is deemed a distraction, it shall be limited.
13. Hair styles and color shall not, in the opinion of the administration, cause a health or safety hazard or cause a disruption of the educational process.
14. Any gang related attire is prohibited (i.e. bandanas, chains of more than 6 inches in length, etc.).

15. Campus Administrators shall render judgment concerning appropriate attire when such judgment is needed. The principal shall have the right to appraise any current fashion or fad and determine its appropriateness for school wear.
