Dress Code

School dress contributes to the school’s atmosphere. A clean, neat, appropriately dressed student promotes an attitude of positive self-regard, which will lead to that student being respected by others. Students are expected to dress neatly and age appropriately, and in doing so, contribute to the general pride of the school.

Shorts/skirts/dresses must pass the “fingertip test” and meet administrative approval.

Spaghetti straps, tank tops,  and halter tops are not allowed. If a sleeveless top is worn, then straps must be at least 3-fingers wide.

Hats, caps, scarves, bandannas or other types of head covering are not to be brought to school, except on designated “hat” days.

Tops that expose the midriff (stomach, chest, ribs, and back) are not acceptable.

Shoes must be worn at all times in the buildings and on the grounds. Shoes must be closed toed. Flip-flops and open-toed sandals are not permitted.

Clothing depicting intoxicating beverages, controlled substances, tobacco products, weapons, or are suggestive of violence or obscenities are not permitted.

               All Cumberland County Schools will make any necessary religious accommodations for any type of headgear or head coverings otherwise                         restricted or prohibited under existing individual school dress codes.

               No student shall receive Out of School Suspension based solely upon violation of an existing individual school dress code.

               If students fail to use good taste or good judgment, parents will be notified. Further, clothing that causes disruption to the school                                       environment is not permitted as well.

The principal reserves the right to determine if a student is appropriately dressed for school.
