1. A detailed description of the uniform.
All dress will be such as to protect the health and safety of all children. Clothing should reflect the educational tone of the school setting. Standardized dress is always encouraged. A student who comes to school without proper attention to cleanliness, neatness or meeting the dress code may be sent home. School shirts with our mascot, the Lion, are available for purchase at school.
In accordance with the California Administrative Code, Title 5, Section 302, students shall be neat, clean, and properly attired for school. It is the parents' responsibility to see that their children are dressed for school in a safe, appropriate manner for learning. Please use the following information as you plan your child(ren)'s wardrobe.
Standards of Dress for Students
• Students must wear shoes that fit securely and have non-skid soles. Backless shoes, sandals of any kind, shoes with a high heel, open toed shoes, and shoes with wheels are not permitted.
• Half shirts, crop tops, spaghetti straps, tube tops, see-through shirts, or short-shorts are not permitted.
• Hats, caps, bandannas, or any other kind of head attire is not permitted unless required for medical reasons.
• Shirts or blouses that advertise items that are illegal for minors (such as alcohol or tobacco), contain profanity or suggestive double meanings are not permitted.
• Attire or grooming worn or displayed in such a way as to identify students with gangs/hate groups is not permitted (e.g., T-shirts with gang symbols, wallet chains, baggy pants, etc.).
§ Dangling jewelry or earrings that hang below the ear. Multiple piercings are strongly discouraged.
The district takes a strong stance against gang-affiliated clothing and/or styles of dress or grooming affiliated with gangs/hate groups, due to safety concerns for students while at school or going to and coming from school. Because of changing trends in such attire, specific clothing, jewelry, accessories, and/or grooming style restrictions may change during the school year. Notice will be given to students and parents/guardians as soon as it is reasonably possible after these trends have been identified through the assistance of the local law enforcement authorities.
It is hoped that this information will not offend, but rather assist you in determining those clothes that will positively influence your child's school experience. Teachers may also use their discretion in determining if a student's dress is appropriate. Any time a member of the staff believes that a student is disrupting the educational process by his/her appearance, or believes that the student's safety is in jeopardy, the teacher may send the student to the office. Students whose attire is inappropriate will be removed from class until the attire is corrected.
