Dress Code

Standards of Dress for Elementary Schools

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 this information as you plan your children's school wardrobe.

 The following are the standards of dress for students:

  1. Students need to wear shoes that fit securely with non-skid soles. Tennis shoes are ideal. Shoes with wheels attached are not acceptable for school.
  2. No half shirts, crop tops, tube tops, see-through shirts, shirts/tops that expose underwear or short-shorts are allowed.
  3. No shirts or blouses that advertise items illegal for minors (such as alcohol or tobacco), contain profanity, or contain suggestive double meanings are allowed.
  4. Attire or grooming worn or displayed in such a way as to identify students with gangs/hate groups is not allowed.

Hats or visors may be worn on campus when participating in outdoor activities. They may be any color, however, school colors are recommended. No logos other than school logos will be permitted.

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 or guardians as soon as it is reasonable possible after these trends have been identified with the assistance of local law enforcement authorities. 

We hope this list will help you determine those clothes that will positively influence your child's school experience. When in doubt, parents are urged to contact the school prior to purchasing school clothing or accessories that might be restricted from school wear as a gang--affiliated item.

Teachers may use their discretion in deciding 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 when the student's safety is concerned, the teacher may send the student to the office. Students whose dress is inappropriate will be removed from the class until the dress is corrected.
