Student Dress and Grooming Standards

Dress and grooming affect the attitude of students in their work and study habits and contribute to a productive learning environment. Students should wear safe, modest clothing which is not disruptive to the educational process. The primary standards for student dress and grooming are to be neat and clean while at school and to comply with the District dress and grooming standards.  These guidelines shall be in effect on campus, at any school sponsored event or activity or while going to or coming from school except where modified by the site administrator for specific extracurricular activities or specific cases. School administrators reserve the right to make an informed judgment on the appropriateness of student attire and may prohibit specific attire when behavior from students warrants the need to do so.
