    Appropriate attire and acceptable appearance strongly correlate with school success.

    • Students may not wear clothing with profane language, double meanings, alcohol or cigarette advertisements, or sexually, racially, or ethnically stereotypical language or pictures.
    • Clothing which overexposes the body is unacceptable. Lewd or suggestive attire may not be worn.  (Examples include:  tight shirts, sagging pants, tops with halter type necks, revealing undergarments, tops that expose the midriff).                                                                                
    • Student’s shorts, skirts and “skorts” must measure to at least 3 inches above the knee.
