EMS Dress Code


Taken from District Board Documents:

“The Board of Education recognizes that responsibility for the dress and appearance of students generally rests with individual students and their parents, and that students may wish to express themselves by the manner of their dress and appearance. Students shall not, however, wear clothing or affect an appearance at school or school-sanctioned activities or events that is or will be disruptive to the educational environment. Districtwide standards on student attire are intended to help students concentrate on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems and improve school order and safety. Students also shall not wear clothing or affect an appearance that compromises the maintenance of a safe and orderly school. The following general standards shall also apply:

  • Any manner of grooming or apparel, including clothing, jewelry, emblems and/or badges which by virtue of color, arrangement, trademark, or other attribute is associated with, or denotes membership in or affiliation with, any gang, is not allowed. The prohibition on gang-related apparel shall be applied at the discretion of building level administrators, after consultation with the superintendent or designee, as the need arises at individual schools.

  • To avoid injury and disease, shoes, boots, sandals, or other footwear must be worn in school buildings.

  • Reasonable cleanliness of student clothing is required as a matter of general health and welfare.

Subject to approval of the superintendent or designee, principals may establish additional specific standards for their schools. Any such standards must be published and distributed to students and their parents, and a copy shall be filed with the superintendent or designee.

Disciplinary action for violation of the student dress code shall include notifying the student of the violation and a requirement that the dress or appearance be corrected before the student reenters the classroom, school environment, and/or school-sanctioned activity or event. At the discretion of the building level administrator, a parental conference may be held. More serious consequences, including suspension or expulsion, may result from repeated or serious violations.”

EMS philosophy:

The school is an educational environment designed to prepare young people to be leaders in our world. We expect that students learn to dress for specific purposes and situations. Students are asked to dress in a manner that reflects a respectful attitude toward learning. Parents and students are asked to cooperate in implementing a dress code. The below guidelines are not inclusive and are subject to change with coming fashions.
