All must be of the appropriate size, not cut low in the front nor see through. The length of shorts, skirts and dresses must fall at or below the fingertips when hands extended at the side. Leggings may be worn under skirts/dresses but the fingertip rule still applies.

All items of personal clothing including boots, raincoats, umbrellas, jack-ets, etc. should be plainly marked with the child’s name and grade. This will facilitate claiming and returning lost items. Articles are frequently lost and the School cannot assume responsibility of these losses.

Middle School

The dress and grooming of middle school students at Casey Elementary School shall be neat and clean, promoting a positive educational environment. Clothing that disrupts educational activities will result in the removal of the student from the regular school environment until acceptable alternate clothing can be procured for the student. The administration will be the final judge of whether a student's clothing is appropriate for school or whether it may create a climate that is distracting to learning. The administration has the right to amend this dress code at any time. Principals, faculty, and staff members will enforce the dress code.
