Education Code Sections 35183 and 35183.5 authorize school districts to adopt dress codes.
Students are expected to dress in a manner that reflects positively on themselves, their parents, and their school.
Consequences for violating dress code range from detention to suspension and possible referral to an alternative education site.
  • Clothing, jewelry, and personal items shall be free of writing, pictures, or any other insignia which is vulgar, lewd, obscene, profane, gang-related, directs hate toward a group, is sexually suggestive, promotes the use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or other illegal activity. 
  • Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments.  See-through tops and bare abdomens are prohibited.
  • Appropriate footwear must be worn at all times
  • The dress code shall be modified as appropriate to accommodate a student's religious or cultural observance, health condition, or other circumstance deemed necessary by the principal or designee.  In addition, the principal or designee may impose dress requirements to accommodate the needs of special school activities, physical education classes, athletic activities, and other extracurricular and co-curricular activities.
Changes to the Dress Code may be made necessary at any time during the year by the administration.  Students and parents will be notified of any changes.
