Dress Code

Students should be dressed appropriately for school. Students are expected to dress in a way that is consistent with a positive learning environment, that does not interfere with the educational performance of other students, or that causes a health or safety concern. 

Apparel worn to school should be neat and clean and should not disrupt the teaching/learning experience. 

Please keep in mind that students are involved in various activities throughout the school day. Students will engage in hands-on learning experiences that may include indoor/outdoor play, various art activities, sand and water play, etc. 

Guidelines for Dress:

  • No spaghetti strap tank tops or dresses.
  • Skirts and shorts must fall 3 or more inches above the knee.  A good rule of thumb is that the shorts should be no higher than a student's fingertips when the hands are at his/her side.
  • Pants are worn at the waist.
  • No visible undergarments.
  • "Heelies" are not permitted.
  • We suggest that on the days your child has P.E. he/she wear tennis shoes and shorts, pants or sweat pants so that he/she can participate fully in all activities.
  • No flip-flops or open toed shoes - they increase the likelihood of falls, injuries and insect bites. Sneakers are a safer choice.
  • Students should not wear ill-fitting clothing, halter-tops, swimsuits, shirts with spaghetti straps, baggy pants, shoes/boots with high heels, flip flops or clogs.
  • Do not wear dresses or skirts of an inappropriate length, or immodest apparel.
  • Large loop earrings, long necklaces, nose rings, or other jewelry that could cause injury should not be worn for safety reasons.
  • Students should not wear hats or other head wear in the building except for medical reasons and special programs.
  • Clothing with offensive language or which promotes or depicts drugs, alcohol, tobacco, drug paraphernalia, violence, hate speech, or gang symbols is prohibited.
