Dress Code

Students must conform to the general dress code policy of the school. All students are expected to dress appropriately for a K-12 educational environment. Any clothing, hair styles, or hair color that significantly interferes with/or disrupts the educational environment, unless protected under the freedom of speech laws or board policy is unacceptable.

Clothing, jewelry, and personal items (backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles, etc.) with language or images that are vulgar, sexually suggestive, discriminatory, obscene, or libelous, or that promote illegal or violent content, such as the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia, or clothing that contains threats, is prohibited. Clothing should fit, be neat and clean, and conform to standards of safety, good taste, and decency. Clothing that exposes cleavage, private parts, the midriff, or undergarments, or that is otherwise sexually provocative, is prohibited.

Each school will allow students to wear sun-protective clothing, including but not limited to hats, for outdoor use during the school day. Each school site may adopt rules that specify the types of sun-protective clothing that students will be allowed to wear outdoors and specify the types of clothing and hats that may be “inappropriate.” (Ed. Code 35183.5)
