Dress Code

Dress should be appropriate for learning and not a distraction to your child or others.  The following is prohibited-

  • Shorts or skirts above the mid-thigh;
  • Tank tops with spaghetti straps; halter or strapless tops;
  • Clothing which prints vulgarities, promotes illegal activity, displays pictures, words or links to websites that advertise or imply drugs, alcohol or weapons, or displays discriminatory words or gestures;
  • Hats, hoods or bandanas;
  • Slippers, flip flops, shoes with wheels or high heels;
  • Long scarves, long ornamental necklaces and earrings, and belts with chains;
  • Coats, jackets or other attire normally worn as outerwear;
  • Sunglasses (unless prescribed by a doctor)

Make-up is discouraged because students often want to re-apply the make-up which becomes a distraction.

Students who violate the dress code or wear clothing that is a distraction may be removed from class until an adult can provide appropriate attire.  In the case of make-up, your child may be asked to simply wash it off.
