Student Dress Code

Middle school students
We want our students to understand the importance of education, to take it seriously, and to be prepared for their eventual transition from school to the work place. Students are expected to use good judgment in dressing appropriately while promoting a positive school culture.

The following types of clothes may be worn at Cedar Heights Middle School:
  1. Pants that are worn above the hips and properly secured.
  2. Shorts, skirts, or torn pants that cover the entire leg at least six inches above the knees.
  3. Shirts that cover the whole torso or undergarment and have shoulder straps that are at least one inch wide.
  4. Shoes that have hard soles (other requirements maybe made for specific classes (i.e. Science, P.E).
  5. Hats may be worn in the building. While in the classroom it is at the discretion of the teacher.

Examples of clothing that should not be worn at school:

  1. Clothing that does not represent our Cedar Commitment of respect.
  2. Clothing that exposes skin, undergarments or items of clothing that violate dress code guidelines.
  3. Pajamas or slippers.
  4. Clothing that references drugs, alcohol, weapons, sex, or vulgar language.
  5. Clothing that references gang activity (i.e. bandanas).
    Hoods may not be worn in the building.
The dress code will be monitored by staff. Their discretion as to the appropriateness of the attire will be honored. Students violating the dress code will be asked to change or a citation will be issued to the student. Exceptions to the dress code may be made for spirit days at administrator’s discretion.
