Dress Code

As part of the expectation of courtesy and respect, all students are required to adhere to reasonable and respectable standards in dressing and grooming for a focused working and learning environment. Clothing needs to facilitate comfortable interaction within the school community. Students should be sensitive to the values and expectations of the community and should strive to offend no one by their attire. Student dress should be modest, appropriate for the school setting and conducive to a safe environment. 

Clothing deemed to be inappropriate may include:

  • Clothing that does not cover underwear
  • Skirts/dresses/shorts shorter than mid-thigh (shirts, tops, dresses must have shoulder straps)
  • Shirts, tops, dresses without shoulder straps
  • Shirts/tops not long enough to cover navel; low cut fronts
  • Messages that display or promote discrimination, hatred or violence, profanity or obscene gestures, the use of alcohol or drugs, or gang affiliations, are unacceptable. 

Our expectations for student dress at Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School are intended to promote a positive learning atmosphere and we ask all members of our school community to support and respect these expectations.
