Our School Dress Code
School uniforms are MANDATORY.
TOPS: Collared, short or long sleeved three button shirts in any solid color. Shirts may not be form-fitting, lycra or spandex, and must be long enough to cover the midriff.

Hemmed shorts and skirts must reach the end of the first row of knuckles beyond the hand when the arm is held down at the side. All trousers must be secured at the waist. Bottoms should not to be so low that the midriff is exposed. NO denim/jean material regardless of color is appropriate. Sweat pants, nylon athletic pants, lycra, spandex, or oversized pants will NOT be permitted!
FOOTWEAR: Shoes or athletic shoes must be worn at all times. For safety reasons, bedroom slippers cannot be worn.
OUTERWEAR: Jackets/sweaters may be worn but not in the place of an appropriate top.
HEAD COVERINGS: Caps, hats, and bandannas may not be worn unless they are worn for religious or medical reasons.
ACCESSORIES: Any articles of clothing or jewelry including, but not limited to, belts, bracelets, or collars with spikes, heavy link chains, and wallet chains may cause injury and are not allowed.
Clothing that is indecent, suggestive or revealing will not be permitted. "Indecent, suggestive, and revealing refer to exposure of private body parts and/or pictures or words with a sexual connotation," as referenced in the Student Code of Conduct Book.
