Dress Code

As we seek to represent Christ Jesus to others, our dress and grooming standards should reflect that responsibility. Proper attire and general appearance should be above reproach in all areas of modesty. Let us bring glory to God through our appearance and character as we are set apart for Him
(2 Corinthians 5:20, Leviticus 20:26, 1 Timothy 3:2)

While we require dress code during school hours, modesty rules still apply at all school events and functions. It is very important that parents support and enforce the dress code rules for their student.

                Girls:

  • Tank top straps must be at least 2 inches wide with solid fabric (no lace straps)

  • Shirts, tops and blouses may not be low cut, sheer (unless a dress code appropriate tank top is underneath) or show midriff or bra/bralette straps while performing everyday movements.

  • Jeans may be worn unless they have rips (this includes rips with a backing material), tears or holes in them. Jeans/pants may be mended to repair rips/tears due to wear and tear. Rips/Tears may not be visible.

  • Jeans and pants may not be excessively tight or low cut (showing off the backside)

  • Sweatpants, tear away warm-ups, and pajama/flannel pants will not be permitted.

  • Dresses and skirts must be no more than 2 inches above the knee all the way around while performing everyday movements. If there is a sheer overlay to the dress or skirt, the underneath material must be within dress code parameters. Slits on skirts must also fall within dress code length and be no more than 2 inches above the knee.

  • Leggings may not be worn unless they are under dress code appropriate length dresses or skirts. Jegging and other excessively tight pants fall under this rule.

  • Shorts (no more than 2 inches above the knee) maybe worn except on chapel days.

  • Our K-6th grade students may not wear flip flops or sandals without backs (this is a playground safety issue).

  • Chapel day and dressing up for sports is intended to look significantly different than everyday dress. Therefore the dress code is a dress, skirt or dress pants and a blouse or nice top (no t-shirts) for girls. Please note: Colored jeans are not dress pants and will not be allowed for chapel or when students are required to dress up for sports.

  • Hoodies may not be worn during chapel time.

  • Athletic shorts (must be no higher than mid-thigh) are only to be worn for P.E. and see through or sleeveless athletic jerseys will not be allowed.

  • T-shirts must not have offensive logos, images or messages on them.

  • Hair color must be a natural color with a modest haircut.

  • Girls may wear earrings and jewelry but they may not have tattoos, piercings other than ears or excessive piercings on their ears (more then 2). No ear plug piercings will be allowed

  • Hats, stocking caps and other headgear may not be worn inside the school building

  • We require all students to keep to a healthy personal hygiene regimen. This means that students are required to come to school with clean hair, clothes and have a general appearance of cleanliness
