Dress for Relaxed/Casual Dress Days

On relaxed/casual dress days students may wear appropriate jeans or pants, and when the weather permits shorts, athletic shorts with visible compression shorts. Apparel shall be adequate in both length and coverage to be considered appropriate for school. The appropriate length for shorts—including athletic style shorts—is mid-thigh, which is the distance between the upper leg crease and the top of the kneecap. T-shirts and tops must also be in good condition and school-appropriate (no distasteful messages, images, etc.). Tops must cover shoulders, stomachs, and backs. Tennis shoes/athletic shoes in good condition are acceptable. All clothing items must be clean, neat, modest, and of good fit and repair (e.g., not sagging, form-fitting, clinging, and/or torn.)  School apparel from other private or public schools may NOT be worn during the school day.  Please note: Dress code disciplinary policy as referred to in the Middle School Handbook is in effect during dress down days.

The Dean of Students or Principal’s designee is the final authority on the acceptability of a dress code item.
