Students should wear clothing to school that is comfortable, safe and appropriate. There will be outdoor recess during the winter months. Please make sure that students come to school with hats and gloves.
Students should refrain from coming to school wearing cut-offs, short shorts or short skirts; shorts or pants that expose the buttocks, underwear or navel; tank tops; dresses or skits with spaghetti straps; halter tops; tube tops; half shirts or mesh shirts; flip flops; shoes with wheels. In addition, the wearing of clothing bearing obscene writing or promoting indecent or unacceptable behavior such as the use of alcohol, tobacco and/or controlled dangerous substances, whether stated or implied, will not be permitted.
In all such cases, students wearing inappropriate items will be asked to remove or replace them. When it is determined that students are in violation of these guidelines, they will be sent to the nurse’s office and provided with temporary clothing for the remainder of the school day.
Unless required to do so as required by religious custom or medical condition, no student is permitted to wear a hat or any other head covering in school. Students are permitted to wear hats in the school building on Spirit Day.
