Elementary Dress Code

ELYSIAN FIELDS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

 

 

The District’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevents disruption, and minimizes safety hazards.  The administration and faculty shall have the right to appraise any current fashion or fad and determine whether it is appropriate or inappropriate for school wear.  The principal has the right to ask students to change attire if it is deemed inappropriate.  Students who disregard the dress and grooming policy will be subject to disciplinary action.  These rules are in effect at all school activities (whether on this campus or any other campus) throughout the school year.  Students who miss class time or are sent home at any time while correcting grooming/dress code problems are considered absent or tardy.  Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:
