DISTRICT DRESS CODE

STUDENT DRESS (2021-2022) PCSSD PARENT/STUDENT HANDBOOK

A student will not practice a mode of dress that disrupts the educational process, calls attention to the individual, violates federal, state, or local law, or affects the welfare and safety of students and teachers. Furthermore, students are prohibited from obscene, lewd, or vulgar comments or designs, and wearing clothing directed toward or intended to threaten, intimidate, or demean an individual or group of individuals, as well as items advertising alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs.

Students in the District, grades Kindergarten (K) through five (5), will wear school uniforms: navy and khaki bottoms and solid polo-style shirts without emblems. Exemptions: Parents may apply to the building principal for full or partial exemptions or waivers for students due to a handicapping condition or religious observation. New students to District schools will be given two (2) weeks to comply with the uniform dress code. Denied exemption requests may be appealed to the Assistant Superintendent for Equity and Pupil Services.

All secondary students are required to wear District issued ID badges that are visible during school and on the bus. The local school dress code will be enforced.
