There are occasions when Ivy students earn the privilege of wearing “free dress” to school. The rules are designed to make the campus safe and secure and to keep the dress code of our school appropriate. The following dress code is in effect on those days and at all school functions on or off the campus, unless other dress is specified. These rules are also in effect when wearing school uniforms.
All clothing shall be neat, clean and acceptable in repair and appearance and shall be worn within the bounds of decency and good taste as appropriate for school. Dress hemlines, shirt bottoms and pant cuffs must be neatly hemmed. Garments with frayed edges, torn or with holes are not appropriate for the school setting. Garments shall be sufficient to appropriately conceal undergarments at all times.
Articles of clothing, which display gang symbols, profanity or products and slogans which promote tobacco, alcohol, drugs; materially interfere with schoolwork; create disorder or disrupt the educational process are not allowed. No professional athletic team logos and names are permitted on hats, jerseys, shorts, and pants. University or college clothing is acceptable.
Metal accessories and jewelry, including exposed body piercing jewelry, pocket chains, studs, sharp jewelry or spikes, which presents a hazard to health or safety, are prohibited. Web belts with military style buckles or belts with emblem, engraving, initials, etc. are not permitted. Belts must be no longer than 6 inches after buckling. Oversized buckles or chains may not be worn. Wallets with chains are not permitted.
Oversized clothing is inappropriate and may create a safety hazard. Pants must stay up on the hips without the use of a belt and should not cover shoes. No clothing identifiable as gang attire or clothing the administration considers denoting gang involvement is permitted. Shorts that stop below the knee, worn with long white socks are considered gang attire and may not be worn. Socks should not be worn beyond mid-calf. There must be at least six inches of skin visible between the bottom of the pants and the top of the socks.
Beach wear, halter tops, tube tops, bare midriffs or chest, see-through or mesh outfits, off the shoulder blouses or blouses with thin straps are not appropriate or acceptable.
Shirts and blouses must sufficiently cover the chest, bosom and stomach.
Girls may wear tights with over garments that comply with dress code policy. Wearing tights with a t-shirt or sweatshirt is not considered an acceptable outfit.
Walking shorts are permitted and must be between mid-thigh and upper knee in length and not longer than below the knee. All sportswear-type shorts, bike shorts (spandex), frayed shorts, shorts with holes, or short-shorts are unacceptable.
Closed -toed shoes or athletic shoes must be worn at all times (No beach wear, flip-flops, open toe shoes, sandals, Crocs, Uggs or combat boots).
Hats, caps, hoods and sun visors may be worn outside of offices and classrooms for protection from the sun. They may not be worn inside without special permission. They must be plain colors, without any symbols, logos emblems, pictures or lettering. They must be worn with the visor/bill end forward, not to the side or back. Students are not to wear hair rollers, bandanas, wave caps, sweatbands, hairnets, skull caps, or beanies. Items like this may be confiscated and will be returned only to parents.
