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.
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
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.
