Dress Code

Dress for Success

The dress code is aimed at establishing and maintaining reasonable standards of dress for all school activities. Good taste and judgment in the selection of clothing worn to school is expected. Styles in dress and grooming become unacceptable when they distract, are unhealthy, unsafe or offensive to others. Clothing should be clean, tidy and appropriate for an educational setting.

  • Clothing should not compromise modesty. Clothing such as spaghetti straps, halter tops, tube tops, muscle shirts, backless tops/dresses or see-through attire shall not be worn at school. Clothing should not be too tight or too loose. Shirts and pants must be friends (and need to meet all the time!)
  • Clothing that exposes inappropriate areas shall not be worn. This includes undergarments, shoulders, and midriffs. Skirts, dresses and shorts need to reach at least the mid-thigh. Pant legs cannot be so long that they drag on the ground.
  • Heelies (shoes with wheels built into them) will not be allowed. These shoes damage the floors when the wheels are released.
  • Outdoor attire will be removed and kept in lockers during school hours this includes gloves, jackets, coats, backpacks, purses.
  • No spray cologne, perfume, body spray deodorant. Many people are affected by excessive odors.
  • No accessory paraphernalia such as chains, sunglasses, bandannas, studded bracelets, collars, etc.
  • Clothing needs to be appropriate for classes where safety is an issue such as PE, construction, science and foods.
  • School approved PE gear is mandatory for reasons of safety.
  • Obscenity or violence is not tolerated in our school; therefore, clothing and personal belongings with obscene sayings are not acceptable such as: drug paraphernalia/sayings, violent scenes or inappropriate messages (i.e. beer logos, sexual or drug connotation).
  • Sleepwear is for sleeping and we don’t encourage sleeping at school.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times in case of an evacuation drill. Indoor shoes must be non-marking.

In accordance with CBE Policy, students who do not comply with the dress code will be asked to change clothing, change into their gym strip, be kept in the office area, or sent home in order to dress appropriately. The staff may determine which articles of clothing contravene our dress code.

Dress for Physical Education  

All students are required to change for physical education classes and are expected to wear school approved gym strip. For safety reasons, students need proper footwear, specifically running shoes that can be tied up. During class, students may use a gym locker and are responsible for their own belongings. Students are required to supply their own lock for physical education. It is also recommended students use a mesh bag for their belongings.
