Our expectation is that students conscientiously dress for school in a manner that is suitable for their learning activities, and that helps prepare them for the work/professional environments they’ll eventually be part of. We would consider the following to be inappropriate for a school setting:

  • muscle shirts
  • short shorts/skirts/dresses
  • visible undergarments
  • halter tops or tops with loose straps
  • hats, sunglasses, hoods up over the head
  • any tops that expose the stomach or back or cleavage; and/or, apparel (or accessories) that contain any offensive language, images, or paraphernalia

Should it be necessary to do so, our staff member(s) will discreetly address any concerns with the individual student. In a situation where such a conversation takes place, the student will be given the opportunity to find another piece of clothing at school (such as their gym strip) – either to change into or to cover up.

We consider our dress code to be an ever-evolving process, and will revisit it accordingly to make any pertinent changes. Ultimately, we want to promote a positive learning environment in all that we do at Harold Panabaker School.
