Proper dress and grooming habits are important in developing a positive pattern of school and social conduct. There is a direct correlation between student appearance and their behavior. The Student Appearance Code is established to teach good grooming and hygiene; to instill discipline and prevent disruption; to avoid safety hazards; and to teach respect for authority. Since it is not possible to anticipate all styles or fads that might be presented, it should not be assumed that an item is appropriate just because it is not mentioned in the Code. The campus principal/designee will rule at his/her discretion on all matters concerning interpretation of the student dress code, including matters not specifically covered in the student dress code.
If the principal/designee determines that a student’s grooming or dress violates the appearance code, the student shall be given the opportunity to correct the problem at school with grooming aids and/or replacement garments on hand or delivered by parents/guardians. If the problem of unacceptable grooming or clothing cannot be immediately corrected, the student may be assigned to In-School Suspension for the remainder of the school day.
The principal, in cooperation with the sponsor, coach, or other person in charge of an extracurricular activity, may regulate the dress and grooming of students who participate in the activity. Students who violate these standards may be removed from the activity or organization for a period determined by the principal or sponsor and may be subject to other disciplinary action.
