Guidelines for Dress Attire
The following clothing is allowed in our dress code. If clothing is not listed below then it is not allowed. The administration reserves the right to make individual judgments regarding appropriateness of dress and appearance.
Tops - Must be modest (non see-through fabric and appropriate fit), collared or crew neck (1 inch from the collar bone), and long enough to allow for tucking in. No revealing low-cut styles and no camisoles or other under garments should be visible. Advertisements of any illegal or immoral activity will not be allowed. V-neck sweaters are acceptable, provided that a collared or crew shirt is worn underneath. Sweatshirts can be worn, provided they meet the above requirements. Hoods cannot be worn in the buildings.
Pants and Shorts - Pants and shorts must be modest, appropriate size, opaque (non see-through) fabric. Jeans, slacks, cargo, wader, clam digger or capri style pants are allowed. Belts must be worn at all times. Only walking shorts are allowed (worn slightly above the knee).
Dresses and Skirts - Any color or pattern (non see-through fabric), length must be at or below the knee cap. Skirts must be worn with a dress code top listed above. No high cut slits allowed.
Shoes - Shoes must be worn at all times. Dress shoes, athletic shoes, and sandals are allowed. Slippers are NOT allowed.
We feel that it is not only the school?��Ǩ�Ѣs responsibility to determine the student dress code; but, also the student?��Ǩ�Ѣs and parent?��Ǩ�Ѣs responsibility to adhere to a dress code that is conducive to a proper learning environment. Ultimately - modesty should prevail, not the latest in fashion trends. We very much appreciate your attention to, concern with, and responsibility for the manner in which your child dresses for learning.
Dress Code violators will be asked to change into appropriate dress code attire. If they are unable to do so, the student will either be sent home or they can seek permission from parents to purchase appropriate attire from the Lion's Den.
