Students are expected to dress and groom themselves in such a way as to reflect high standards of neatness, cleanliness, and good taste. All students should be modestly dressed in a manner that does not disrupt the operation of the school anywhere in the building or in the classroom. Administrators will make a determination of appropriate dress in the case of any uncertainty or dispute. (The athletic department will determine the appropriate dress for students involved directly in a physical education class.)

The following guidelines apply to all students in the halls and classrooms during school hours:

  • Clothing MUST NOT degrade or be offensive to gender, race, color, religious creed, or sexual orientation.
