2014 - 15 TES Student Dress Code
Policy JICA: Students are expected to dress and be groomed in such a way as to not distract or cause disruption in the educational program or orderly operation of the school. Personal appearance of students should promote health and safety, contribute to a climate conducive to learning and project a positive image of the district and community. Schools may develop specific guidelines for the school and/or specific grade levels.
Dress for Success!
For all grade levels:
· Shoes must be worn at all times. Students are involved in physical activity each day during recess, therefore, sneakers are the safest footwear at elementary school. Sneakers with socks are the most appropriate because of safety in class, PE activities, recess, and when climbing stairs. For safety’s sake, no flip-flops or high heeled shoes should be worn to school. Flip-flops with a button on the bottom are not considered shoes and, therefore, cannot be worn.
· Hats and other headwear may not be worn in the building unless the principal has designated a special day for hats.
· Sunglasses are not allowed unless prescribed by a physician for medical reasons.
· NO bare midriffs, see-through garments, bare backs, pajamas, spaghetti straps, halter tops, baggy-armed sleeveless shirts, and tank tops.
· No low cut or revealing tops can be worn.
· No article of clothing bearing any words or phrases that are obscene, vulgar, or otherwise in bad taste should be worn to school. Included in this are t-shirts and other items advertising or promoting products that are illegal for students to use.
· No sagging of pants or shorts allowed. The waist band of the pants or shorts must be worn on the waist.
· Pants (bottoms) should have no holes above the knee.
For grades 3-6:
· The length of shorts, skirts, and dresses must not be shorter than 4 inches from the middle of the knee (even if tights or leggings are worn underneath).
· No clothing should conform to the body (no spandex, leotards, jeggings).
