Coats, jackets, and/or pullover garments may not have inappropriate insignia, logos, or language. Dusters and trench coats will not be allowed. Jackets or sweatshirts with a hood may be allowed for indoor wear with the stipulation that hoods will be removed upon entering a building. A regulation uniform shirt must be worn under all outerwear. Students will be allowed to wear school-sponsored organization (FFA, BETA, athletic, etc.) jackets, sweatshirts and sweaters inside buildings and classrooms with the stipulation that the garments should be blue, white, or the school chosen color.
PANTS: All students’ pants must be khaki or navy color twill "slacks" with or without pleats, with or without belt loops, with or without pockets. Pants must be worn at the waistline. No sagging, over-sized, wide-legged, bell bottom, cargo, safari, joggers, or carpenter pants will be allowed. Pants must be bought in the child's appropriate size. If pants have belt loops, students must wear a belt. No jeans of any color will be allowed.
HAIR: Hairstyles shall be clean, neatly groomed and shall not distract from the learning environment nor be a safety factor for any of the school's curricular offerings. Any hairstyle - including any hair color (other than a naturally occurring color) that distracts from the unique environment of the school will be dealt with by the principal (or designee) of that school.
