The dress code is gender neutral and the school staff will strive to enforce it consistently among all students.
Student attire and grooming must permit the student to participate in learning without posing a risk to the health or safety of any student or school district personnel.
  1. Students must wear clothing that completely covers the chest, torso, undergarments, private areas, and bottom.
  2. Shirts, tops, and dresses must have straps.
  3. Shorts with an inseam that is even with thumbs, or longer. Leggings and tights must be worn with tops long enough to cover torso.
  4. Clothes must be suitable for any scheduled course that may have unique hazards or require specialized safety gear.
  5. Safe footwear must be worn; no slippers are allowed.
  6. Appropriate attire for school does not include pajamas, clothing that advocates drugs, alcohol, weapons, violence; or clothing that is determined by the school administration to be crude, sexually suggestive, culturally biased or gang-related.
