    Brief, beach-style, or revealing clothing is inappropriate. Tops must cover the waist; shorts and skirts should be of an appropriately modest length.
  • Safety and Health
    Shoes must be worn at all times; outdoor clothing should not be worn in class; safety equipment must be worn as required in certain classes.

Students whose dress is inappropriate will be expected to change their clothing, and may be asked to go home, before returning to class.
