Students are expected to follow standards of good taste. Caps and head covering are not permitted inside the building. Clothing which displays offensive language, reference to drugs or alcohol, or is disruptive to the educational process will not be allowed. Closed toe shoes are recommended to prevent accidents and foot injuries. Shoes designed for running and playing and held securely in place are the best for elementary age children. Slides, very dainty sandals, and shoes with high heels or platforms are not appropriate. Also, shoes with wheels may not be worn to school. No backless or high-heeled shoes are permitted. (Flip flops are not permitted; sandals with back straps can be worn). Baggy pants are not permitted because the students cannot walk or run freely while maintaining good balance. Students may wear shorts that are no shorter than the tip of the middle finger. Failure to follow the guidelines can result in a student calling parents to bring a change in clothing to school.
