2021-2022 Student Handbook Dress Code

Students shall come to school looking clean and neat, wearing clothing and exhibiting grooming that will not be a health and/or safety hazard to the student or others.  The District prohibits pictures, emblems, or writings on clothing that are lewd, offensive, vulgar, obscene or that depict or advertise tobacco products, alcoholic beverages of any kind, drugs, or any other substance prohibited under policy FNCA(L); further it prohibits any dress or grooming that, in the principal's judgment, may reasonably be expected to interfere with normal school operations.  If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school.  If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school.  Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
