Dress Code Policy

  • To help keep our students focused on learning without distractions, we expect each one to dress appropriately. Our code of student conduct prohibits disruptive, provocative, revealing, profane, vulgar, offensive, obscene or unsafe clothing or bodily appearances. Here are some examples.
    Don't wear:
    • exposed undergarments
    • sagging pants
    • see-through or excessively short, tight or revealing clothes
    • bare midriff or strapless shirts
    • clothing with lewd, indecent or vulgar messages or illustrations
    • clothing that advertises products or services illegal to minors
    • head coverings
    • chains, spikes or other accessories that could be perceived as or used as a weapon
    • clothing that violates the school system's policies against gang and gang-related activities
    Principals may use their discretion in implementing the dress code, including making reasonable accommodations on the basis of your student's religious beliefs or medical conditions. The Wake Young Men's and Young Women's Leadership Academies have specific uniform policies.
