Dress Code

The District dress code is in place to protect the children and to help make our school a place where students can focus and concentrate on learning. This dress code is mandatory, thus no waivers are available.

Okay:

  • Clothing must be neat and in good repair.
  • Clothing is to be clean, safe, and non-distractive - plain and simple clothing is recommended.
  • Shirts must cover the midriff.
  • Tank tops must have at least one inch straps.
  • Shoes must have a backstrap.  Closed-toed shoes are recommended as students engage in P.E. almost every    day.
  • Stockings are strongly recommended.

Not Okay (prohibited):

  • Holes in clothing including rips and frays.
  • Temporary tattoos, face paint, spray-painted hair
  • Clothing related to gangs, violence, or illegal activities.
  • Shorts, skirts that are too short (above the middle fingertip with arms hanging at one's side).
  • Obscene, sexually explicit, suggestive attire.
  • Professional sports attire, gloves, hairnets, chains.
  • Discriminatory clothing or accessories.
  • Oversized (baggy) clothing.
  • Sunglasses unless medically prescribed.
  • Clothing that  reveals underclothes.
  • Clothing and jewelry with spikes or harmful accessories.
  • No Clothing with skulls, weapons, drugs, blood, or violence.
General information:  No extreme hairstyles (such as Mohawks) or colored gels are allowed.  Hoop earrings cannot be worn as they can get caught on play equipment.  Any clothing, accessory, body marking, piercing, etc. that detracts from the educational process is prohibited (at the discretion of the site administrator).

Hats:
  The state of California has passed a law allowing hats on campus for students whose physicians or parents feel that a child needs sun protection while outside.  Under these conditions, parents may have a plain hat approved by the principal and a student may wear the hat while outside with the bill in the front.
