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.

Clothing deemed to be inappropriate may include:
- Clothing that does not cover underwear
- Skirts/dresses/shorts shorter than mid-thigh
- Shirts, tops, dresses without shoulder straps
- Shirts/tops not long enough to cover navel; low cut fronts
Messages that display or promote the following are unacceptable:

P.E. Dress Requirements
A complete change from regular school wear is required. To participate comfortably and safely and to promote cleanliness, pride and be a good representative of our school, we have established the following dress guidelines. Any athletic T-shirt without offensive cresting, shorts and/or sweatpants, and running shoes that are safe and supportive are appropriate to wear in Phys. Ed.
Not Changing for class – students are not allowed to participate in activities if they are not changed for class. In this case they will need to discuss with the teacher how they will make up the time missed.
