  • Tattoos, clothing or accessories that display drugs, sexual innuendos, inappropriate language, alcohol, tobacco products or gang connotations are not permitted. Tattoos displaying any of these must be covered at all times.
  • No hats are permitted inside of the school building during the school day. If “hoodies” are worn, the hood may not be worn inside of the school. (Religious headwear is an exception.)
  • Sunglasses or dark glasses, absent a verified medical condition, are not to be worn or displayed inside of the school building.
  • Trench coats are not permitted anywhere on school property.
  • Soled shoes or sandals must be worn at all times (for example, no “bedroom” slippers or similar footwear.)
