We believe that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment.  Students are to come to school dressed in clothes that are safe, comfortable and appropriate for their age level and the activities at an elementary school.  Students wearing inappropriate clothing will be asked to have alternate clothing brought from home.

Clothing must be clean and in good repair and cannot be tattered or torn.  It must conceal undergarments at all times.  Hair must be clean, neat and well-groomed.

Guidelines for Student Attire

Shirts, Sweatshirts, Jackets & All Outerwear – All student outerwear (including shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets) must have images and words appropriate for school and not impact the safety and well-being of students. Any images depicting violence or inappropriate language are not allowed. We strongly enforce a campus dress code that promotes positive messaging.  

Hats – Hats or beanies must be appropriate, free of inappropriate messaging. Hats follow the same rules as shirts. 

Jewelry – No hoop earrings or jewelry that could be unsafe when children are playing.

Shoes – Shoes need to be closed toe with a back strap and considered appropriate for P.E.  Shoe laces need to be tied. Croc shoes are highly discouraged as they are difficult for children to run in during recess and P.E.

Shirts – Tank tops need to have a two inch strap or you can use a “three finger rule” to indicate if the shoulder straps are wide enough.  Shirts need to cover midriffs and if a student raises their arms and their stomach shows the shirt is not appropriate for school.

Shorts - Shorts need to be safe and appropriate for school

Skirts and Dresses – The length cannot be shorter than mid thigh.  We encourage girls to wear biking shorts or tights under their skirts and dresses because they will feel more comfortable during outside sporting games.

Makeup -  Makeup and false nails are highly discouraged as it may be a distraction or interferes with the education process. Makeup includes (but it’s not limited to) mascara, lipstick, eyeshadow, and eyeliner.

Since clothing fashions and fads change frequently, it is not possible to address every specific type of inappropriate dress.  If a student’s attire and/or hair distracts from or interferes with the educational process, it will be considered inappropriate even if it does not appear on the above list.
