Our MONTVIEW ELEMENTARY Dress Code
We will adhere to the HCS Dress Code below:
We are committed to preparing our students for college and careers beyond high school. In order to be successful in either area, students must dress in a neat, clean and appropriate manner in clothing that encourages an atmosphere conducive to learning, work, and discipline. Students will not wear any article of clothing or display any insignia or sign that shows disrespect for any person, creed, race, color, sex, or nationality, or that may lead to a disruption of the learning environment. Our goal to prepare students for the future aligns with state educational authorities and recent court decisions which have determined that style of dress and hair should not disrupt classes, interfere with learning, prevent instruction, and should comply with state health and safety standards. Parents/guardians are expected to monitor students’ dress.
The following is a list of dress guidelines that apply but are not limited to:
- Clothing that displays immoral or illegal behavior is not permitted. Any article of clothing, jewelry, or haircut depicting gangs, violence, sex, drugs, alcohol, mutilation or language that could be considered obscene or vulgar will not be permitted.
- Jewelry that could be used as a weapon is not allowed.
- All shorts, skorts, skirts and dresses must fit securely around the waist and come no higher than three inches above the bend of the back of the knee. Slits in skirts and dresses must not be extreme or revealing.
- Except for religious purposes, hats and head coverings may not be worn in school buildings. Sunglasses, gloves, bandanas, and house slippers may not be worn in school buildings.
- Students may not wear pajamas.
- Bib overalls and/or suspenders must be snapped, hooked and/or buttoned and kept on shoulders. Belts must be buckled.
- Pants may not be oversized or allowed to sag. Pant legs must be uniform length and may not drag on the floor.
- Pants or jeans may only have holes at the knee or below. Pants or Jeans that have holes above the knee are not allowed, even if material is beneath the holes.
- Undergarments must not be exposed.
- Private parts must be covered.
- Sleeves must be at least 3” across the shoulder.
- Revealing tops, spandex, or other clinging garments are not permitted.
- Shirts that bare midriffs when arms are raised are not allowed.
- Students may wear yoga pants, tights, leggings, or jeggings as long as they are used as an undergarment covered by shorts, skirts, or dresses that are at least no higher than three inches above the bend of the back of the knee.
- Hoodies and sweatshirts must fit appropriately. Hoods should never be on in the building.
Please dress appropriately for school. If you think it may be inappropriate, it probably is. Use good judgment. Here are some simple guidelines:
- Wear clothes that fit properly.
- Avoid wearing clothes that are too tight or too loose and are revealing.
- Dress for safety.
- Avoid wearing anything that could cause you to hurt yourself or others, even by accident. (i.e. wearing “slides” or flip flops during P.E.)
- Dress positively.
- Avoid wearing anything that may be offensive.
Think about what you are wearing and how it reflects on you. You will be seen by other students, teachers, staff, and the community. Put your best foot forward and show the world you respect yourself and your school. We encourage your individuality but we also encourage you to dress for success.
You may be asked to change into clothing available at the school or wait in office while a parent brings a change of clothes. Disregard for the dress code will lead to disciplinary action, in accordance with the HCS Official Student/Parent Handbook.
The final decision regarding dress will rest with the building principal or his/her designee.
