(A)       The principal of the individual school reserves the right to modify the dress code guide to determine what may be disruptive to the educational environment.  Modifications are typically in response to changes in the fashion industry and are made to minimize disruptions in the school environment. Appropriate student grooming and dress are primarily the responsibility of the student and parent.  However, in adopting a code of student dress, it is the intent of the School Board to ensure that a student’s personal hygiene, appearance, or dress is such that it does not disrupt or interfere with the educational process or endanger the health and safety of the student or others.

(B)       The wearing of garments appropriate for school is to be encouraged.   All instructors should be alert to give helpful, friendly guidance in these matters without embarrassment to the pupil.  Failure of any student to dress simply and appropriately should be brought to the attention of the principal.  Extremes in dress, hair style, make-up or jewelry are not in good taste and should be discouraged.  The homeroom teacher will maintain dress code violation records.

(C)       Students are prohibited, while on school grounds of a public school during the regular school day, from wearing clothing that exposes undergarments or body parts in an indecent or vulgar manner or that disrupts the orderly learning environment.

(D)       General rule of thumb:  NO SHOW ZONE.  The No Show Zone is implemented to refrain from any skin or undergarments being seen from the neckline down to fingertips.  (See SRMS Dress Code).  Guidelines to assist students, parents and administrators towards a better understanding of the above are listed below.


Students may use book bags to bring items to and from school but book bags will not be allowed in the classrooms.  To ensure safety and reduce classroom congestion, book bags or similar items will not be allowed in the classroom/cafeteria.  All book bags should remain in student lockers until the end of the day.  Any bag larger than an (8x10x4) is considered a book bag.  Students with sports bags should make arrangements with their coach to properly store their bag. Failure to comply will be considered a dress code violation.
