Dress Code
The following are the guidelines that staff members at Phoenix school follow when enforcing the school dress code; Shorts and skirts should come to the student’s fingertips or lower when their arms are down to their side. Students cannot wear spaghetti-strap or thin strapped tank tops, halter tops, one shoulder tops, or tube tops. Shirts should not be cut below the armpit, in the front, side, or back. All tank tops must have straps that are at least two fingers wide. Shirts must cover the student’s midriff and not show any part of their stomach. Clothing that contains inappropriate or offensive language or pictures including drug and/or alcohol references and weapons will not be allowed. Anything that can be considered distracting to learning including gang-related colors, bandanas, loud or distracting clothing will not be allowed. School administration will have the final say in this matter.

If a student is found to be wearing something that is not deemed school appropriate, the staff member will ask the student to go to the office. They will be asked to “remedy” the dress code issue. If the student refuses to change their clothing or cover up clothing, the parent/guardian will be contacted and the student will be sent home suspended for that day.
