Dress Down Day Guidelines

These guidelines are not intended to be an exclusive list of permitted or prohibited items of dress, rather a guideline that ensures the safety and orderliness of our school environment even on a “dress down day. The frequency of violations observed may limit the potential number of dress down days in the future.

  • Must be appropriate and decent (not displaying any part of the body inappropriately) and no undergarments may show at any time.  
  • No holes, rips, ravels or tears are permitted in any garment (including jeans).
