ACCEPTABLE DRESS/DRESS FOR SUCCESS
At Madison Junior High we expect students to wear attire that is appropriate and that is not a disruption or distraction to the educational process. These guidelines are designed to promote a positive educational atmosphere. Inappropriate dress is defined in the district Student District.
No garments, spiked or dangerous jewelry depicting distasteful symbols debasing the dignity of a person; no garment, jewelry depicting beer, alcohol, liquor, or drugs may be worn at school; no garments, jewelry with sexually explicit, obscene, or vulgar messages or symbols may be worn at school or at any school-sponsored activities. No coats, caps or bandanas may be worn inside the building. Decorating oneself (i.e.,face-painting) is not appropriate. In addition, at all the junior highs it is expected that:
- Students should wear clothing that totally conceals undergarments. All tops must have straps that are at least one inch wide. Tops must cover the midriff. Boy's shirts must have sleeves.
- All garments should be reasonable in length.
Classroom teachers will make the determination if clothing is a disruption to the class. Students should be warned that their attire is inappropriate or disruptive. A change of clothes will be made.
Shirts may be turned inside out if wording can be hidden or a cover-up can be put on to fix the problem. Students who have been requested to change their attire must keep it changed throughout the school day. Failure to do so will result in an office referral.
