ICTURE DAY IS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, DURING SCHOOL HOURS.
STUDENTS MUST WEAR UNIFORM BOTTOMS, BUT MAY WEAR NON-UNIFORM TOPS BUT, STUDENTS' MUST ABIDE BY THE DRESS CODE IN THE STUDENT/PARENT HANDBOOK.
The prevailing guideline for dress is that it is not disruptive to the educational process as determine by District 172. If dress violations cannot be remedied at school, parents may be contacted to bring a change of clothing to the school. If student dress is found to be blatant and the parent is unable to bring a change of clothing to school, the student may be referred for an in-school suspension. Discipline procedures and steps apply to the student dress code. We believe in providing a learning environment that focuses on the education of each student. In order to prevent distractions that may prevent an optimal setting for learning, students must follow these guidelines:
- Garments will not be flimsy or transparent. Undergarments should not be displayed.
- Clothing that permits display of the midriff, navel, belly, bottom or bare shoulders is not permitted. This includes but is not limited to cutoff t-shirts, halters, and tube tops. Shirts must have sleeves. No low-cut clothing is allowed. There should be no visible chest or cleavage.
- Garments that have pictures and/or writing that is vulgar, suggestive, indecent, or otherwise offensive are not permitted. This includes drugs, alcohol, or tobacco logos with inappropriate suggestions.
- Garments will not be excessively short. (Garments will be finger-tip length or longer.)
- Tight clothing is inappropriate and will not be acceptable. Girls will not wear leggings unless their top garment is finger-tip length or longer. Students will not wear jeggings, joggers, or yoga pants.
- Shirts will not be bound/tied.
- All pants must be worn at the waist. All waistbands must be worn appropriately with no undergarments visible. No underwear showing or pants worn low or sagging. Doing so is a violation of Lynwood law.
- Apparel and/or jewelry that could be harmful or cause injury are unacceptable, such as large hoop earrings. Chains on clothing are not to be worn.
