To help keep our students focused on learning without distractions, we expect each one to dress appropriately. The WCPSS code of student conduct (Board Policy 6410) prohibits disruptive, provocative, revealing, profane, vulgar, offensive, obscene or unsafe clothing or bodily appearances. The principal or designee may require a student to change his or her appearance if it constitutes a threat to the health or safety of others, distracts the attention of other students or staff from their work or violates the dress code.
Here are some examples.
Do not wear:
- exposed undergarments, strapless shirts, skinny-strapped tank tops or bare midriff shirts
- sagging pants
- see-through or excessively short, tight or revealing clothes
- attire that exposes cleavage
- clothing with lewd, indecent or vulgar messages or illustrations
- clothing that advertises products or services illegal to minors
- head coverings of any kind except for religious purposes
- 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
