Dress Code

The following guidelines for dress have been adopted by our district and campus:

  1. Clothing should be neat and clean.
  2. Shoes or sandals must be worn. All students in grades K-5 are required to wear tennis shoes for participation in health fitness classes. All other shoes, regardless of rubber soles or leather tops (saddle oxfords, deck shoes, topsiders, etc.) are not considered safe for health fitness activities.
  3. The district prohibits any clothing or grooming that, in the principal's judgment, may cause disruption of or interference with normal school activities.
  4. Clothing may not be worn if it displays (written or pictured) obscene and/or distasteful slogans or advertises tobacco, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or "gang insignias".
  5. Shorts worn by boys or girls should be at least fingertip length. Please be sure to check the length of shorts worn in the spring that were originally worn earlier at the beginning of the year. Often our fifth-graders have out-grown the appropriate length by the spring. Bicycle shorts or midriff tops are not appropriate school wear and we discourage our students from wearing these items to school. In addition, we suggest that you consider having your child wear shorts under skirts worn to school, especially for participation in fitness activities.
  6. Pants MUST be worn above the hipbone with a belt if needed. Caps, bandannas, and colored beads may not be worn on campus.
