Students are expected to support standards of dress and grooming which reflect the school’s purpose as a place of learning and a place of work. Students should be sensitive to the values and expectations of the community and should strive to offend no one by their dress.
The following guidelines should be observed:
- Appropriateness for specific activities
Special dress may be required in physical education, laboratory, or shop programs.
- Appropriateness for the school setting
Clothing must not display inappropriate or offensive language, slogans, or messages.
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.
