Policy Title: Dress
Code No. 504.1

The board believes inappropriate student appearance causes material and substantial disruption to the school environment or presents a threat to the health and safety of students, employees and visitors on school property or on property within the jurisdiction of the school district. Therefore, students are expected to adhere to standards of cleanliness and dress that are compatible with the requirements of a good learning environment.

As determined by the principal, students must dress in a responsible manner. Health and safety factors are considerationsinacceptableattire.
