The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards. The student and parent may determine the student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the general guidelines and the following requirements:
Students shall come to school clean and neat, wearing clothing and exhibiting grooming that will not be a health or safety hazard to themselves or others. School Board policy prohibits any clothing that in the principal’s judgment may reasonably be expected to cause disruption of or interference with normal school operations (Board Policy FNCA).
The District prohibits pictures, emblems, or writings on clothing that:
1. Are lewd, offensive, vulgar, or obscene.
2. Advertise or depict tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or any other substance prohibited under board policy FNCF(LEGAL).
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 dress and grooming standards established for such an activity may be removed or excluded from the activity for a period determined by the principal or sponsor and may be subject to other disciplinary action, as specified in the Student Code of Conduct.
Dress standards and grooming other than those outlined in this dress code may be requested, expected, and regulated by a teacher, sponsor, coach, and/or principal, dependent on the activity.
Violations of the dress code will be handled with appropriate consequences as outlined in the student code of conduct.
