Updated for the 2020-2021 School Year:
There is a close relationship between high standards of dignity and pride and proper grooming which all contribute to an appropriate learning environment. Modesty will be the dominant feature in all clothes. Attire shall be clean and inoffensive. Students and parents share in the responsibility for proper grooming of the student; however, the campus administrator has the final authority concerning propriety of clothes, hairstyle, and jewelry. Students are expected to follow the uniform standards on campus, on field trips, and at other school activities. Uniforms are expected to be worn Monday-Thursday each week. Friday is free dress day, following the General Guidelines.
Clothing should not be offensive or disrupt the learning environment in any way. Clothing should be neat, fit appropriately, and shirts must cover the abdomen.
Unacceptable clothing and accessories:
- Shorts, skorts or skirts and any slits in such attire shorter than uniform standards require
- Spandex shorts, wind shorts, or other tight fitting shorts
- Halter tops, tank tops or other shirts with deep-cut openings
- Dresses or shirts that only partially cover the shoulders, i.e. spaghetti straps
- Shirts that are sheer or that do not cover the midriff
- Visible undergarments
- Leggings worn in lieu of pants or yoga pants except for yoga class
- Clothing, accessories, or tattoos with references to alcohol, drugs, sex, tobacco, vulgar language, violence, gang-related affiliation, or other symbols that detract from the learning environment
- Gang-related attire (colors, bandanas, shoe laces, symbols, caps worn on belt loops or backpacks)
- Bedroom attire (pajamas, slippers, etc.)
- Caps, hats, hoods or any other head covering in the building, except as worn for religious purposes

Administrators, sponsors, coaches, or other persons in charge of an extracurricular activity (or curricular activity such as a concert), may also regulate the dress and grooming of students who participate in school activities. Designated group or team apparel may be designated.
Dress Code & Uniform Violation Consequences
Uniform violations are considered a disciplinary issue. Students will be required to call home and parents will be required to bring appropriate uniform before the student is allowed back to school activities. For frequent violations, a discipline referral will be issued and student is subject to further disciplinary actions at the discretion of school administrators. Any work missed due to uniform violations will be made up on the student’s own time. Students may be required to wear uniform on Fridays, if violations continue. Receptionist / teachers at respective campuses will keep track of violations.
