Appropriate School Attire Expectations

Appropriate School Attire Expectations

Parents/guardians are expected to monitor their children's choices each morning. As a general rule, students are expected to wear clothing that is appropriate, clean, and does not offend. Students are expected to wear clothing that is not ripped or frayed, and shoes that cover the feet. Students may wear shirts with at least a two-inch shoulder strap (no spaghetti straps or muscle shirts). Tops may not be low cut or exposing. Bare midriffs and bare backs are not permitted. Length of shorts should be at mid-thigh and shoes should cover the feet. For safety reasons, flip-flops are not permitted to be worn at the elementary level.


Shirts that promote the use of tobacco, drugs or alcohol, depict violent acts, or are offensive, either sexually or toward any group of individuals, are not permitted. In the event that a child is dressed inappropriately for school, and this is rare, we will call the parent/guardian and ask that a proper change of clothing be brought to school for the child. In order to avoid this embarrassment, we ask that you discuss these expectations with your child and support our efforts in this matter.
