For safety reasons, students are encouraged to wear covered shoes. Open toed shoes, including but not limited to flip-flops, sandals, slippers, or bare feet, are not acceptable.

Students may wear outerwear that is in good repair and does not contain any inappropriate print or graphics while outdoors only. Upon entering any school building, the coat, jacket, sweatshirt, or sweater must be removed unless it is in compliance with uniform code described above. The only type of headgear permitted will be a hat, which can be worn outdoors only. Hoods on sweatshirts and sweaters may be worn outdoors only.

Students not dressed in accordance with the district dress code will not be permitted in class until they are in compliance.

Students may wait in the In School Detention room until they are dressed in compliance.
