Dress Code

Students are expected to dress in a way that is appropriate for school. Accessories such as bandanas, gloves and arm bands that can be associated with negative groups are not appropriate at school. Similarly, any accessories that represent a risk to student safety, such as neck collars and chains, are not to be worn at school. Clothing, which others might reasonably find offensive, in poor taste or distracting because it is suggestive in nature, too revealing or correlated with negative or slang language is not appropriate to wear at school.

Gym Strip

When participating in physical education classes, students must be changed into proper gym strip; shorts, sweat pants, t-shirt, sweatshirt, socks and running shoes. Any street clothes that are worn during the regular school day are not to be worn as gym clothing.

Concert Attire

All students must be dressed appropriately for performances that occur throughout the year, starting at the beginning of November. Failure to be appropriately attired may result in students being pulled from performance experiences.

A $10.00 uniform cleaning fee will be charged to each student at the beginning of the year. Students who have not paid this fee nor made alternate arrangements for payment will not be allowed to perform. Students will be fitted and sign out a numbered cardigan and tie at the beginning of the year, and will be responsible for cleaning and returning at the end of the year. Failure to return uniform pieces will result in the parent or guardian being charged a $50.00 replacement fee.

The following concert attire must be provided by each student (no exceptions):

Male Students

  • Plain white button-up collared dress shirt (full-length sleeves are not required as they will be covered by cardigans) 
  • Black dress pants/belt 
  • Black socks 
  • Black dress shoes
    * A cardigan and tie will be provided for each student

Female Students

  • Plain white button-up collared dress shirt (full-length sleeves are not required as they will be covered by cardigans) 
  • Black dress pants or skirt (hem MUST be below knee) 
  • Black socks if wearing pants or solid tights if wearing a skirt 
  • Black dress shoes
    * A cardigan and tie will be provided for each student

*Please note for the purpose of ensemble uniformity, no patterns or colored accessories (jewelry or hair) are permitted.
