  • Clothes should be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all time.
  • The appropriate length for skirts and shorts should be no more than 2 inches above the bottom of the kneecap.
  • Short-shorts, tank tops, half shirts, cropped shirts, shirts with inappropriate sayings on them, clothes with sagging waist lines, see-through materials, strapless clothing, spaghetti straps, clothing with deliberately torn holes or revealing clothing are not to be worn at school.
  • Clothes which are 2 to 4 sizes larger than the students would normally wear are not safe for school activities.
  • Straps on sleeveless tops should be at least the width of a lasagna noodle, at least 1 ½” in width. Sleeves that are scooped low under the arms, “basketball jersey,” need another shirt underneath.)
