Student attire and grooming must permit the student to participate in learning without posing a risk to the health or safety of any student or school district personnel.  The responsibility for the dress and grooming of a student rests primarily with the student and their parents or guardians. Parents or guardians are responsible for ensuring student compliance with the school dress code.  Students are responsible for complying with the dress code during school hours and school activities. It is important that the student comes to school dressed appropriately for all outdoor physical activities.

    • Students must wear clothing that includes both a shirt with pants or a skirt or the equivalent (for example, dresses, shorts, or leggings) and shoes appropriate for physical movement and physical education classes. 

    • No flip flops, open-toe, open-heel, or heeled shoes over one inch. 

    • Comfortable and flexible street shoes or tennis shoes are suggested. 

    • Clothing must cover the chest, back, buttocks, and torso. 

    • Clothing must opaquely cover private parts and any undergarments at all times (see-through clothing, mesh, or transparent materials do not meet this requirement). 

    • Tops or shirts must have a minimum of a strap over each shoulder that keep the top in place to meet the above requirements. 

    • Clothing may not depict, advertise or advocate the use of firearms, alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, or other controlled substances. 

    • Clothing may not use or depict hate speech targeting groups based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, or any other protected classification. 

    • Students may not wear clothing and accessories that feature offensive images or language, including profanity, pornography, vulgarities, or defamatory language, as determined by the school principal or their administrative designee. 

    • Students are encouraged to wear hats and visors outdoors to provide sun protection. Hats or visors may not be worn indoors, with the exception of religious, ethnic, or culturally specific head coverings. 

    • Dangling earrings or elaborate jewelry are not permitted due to safety concerns during physical activity and play. 

    If a student requires support from school staff in abiding by dress code requirements, this support shall be provided in the least restrictive and disruptive manner possible. Administration and enforcement of the dress code will be gender-neutral. In the case that a student is unable to abide by the dress code policy, school-provided garments may be loaned to the student until the parent or guardian is able to provide appropriate clothing.
