    Student Dress at Fuquay-Varina High School


    All students at FVHS are expected to be groomed and to dress appropriately.  It should be in accordance with the dress code policy adopted by the Wake County Board of Education (6410CI-5) and found at https://www.wcpss.net/policy-files/series/policies/6410-bp.html


    In addition to complying with board policy on student dress, all students at Fuquay-Varina High School are required to wear shoes or footgear at all times on campus. 


    The prohibited “head covering of any kind” applies to males and females which includes any type of headgear, inclusive but not limited to:  hats scarves, bandanas, “do-rags,” headbands, etc. 


    The following examples are considered automatic violations of dress code: masks or any garment which covers the face including sunglasses, pants not supported at the waist, and revealing clothing such as tank tops, mesh or lace clothing, spandex/biker shorts, halter tops, tops with spaghetti straps, female tops that are too revealing and any clothing considered inappropriate by the staff.  Skirts and shorts should be an appropriate length and not too revealing. 

    Students in violation of this policy can expect to be sent home for appropriate clothing; repeat offenders face a full range of disciplinary measures. With ever-changing styles, additional guidelines may be established to help maintain high standards of dress.  The standards of dress are provided so as not to be distracting to the teaching and learning process.
