Formal “dress up” clothing, swim/beachwear, short shorts, “muscle” shirts, and tube/halter tops are not appropriate for school.
Clothing associated with drugs, alcohol, tobacco, weapons, violence, obscenity, or gangs is not permissible. Logos with inappropriate double meanings and affiliated with messages which violate school policy are prohibited.

Pants must fit appropriately and worn at the waist.
Exposed underwear, pajamas, cropped tops, tube tops, spaghetti straps, and short shorts are not allowed. Shoulders on sleeveless tops must be 2 inches in width.
Hats and hoods may be worn outside for sun protection only. Hair should not be a distraction. Hair may not be sprayed, dyed, or painted any unnatural colors. Temporary dyes cause damage to books and materials. Mohawks are not allowed.
