Proper School Dress

In order to provide an atmosphere conducive to learning, all students at WestsideáMiddle School will follow the regulations below. In addition, WMS administratorsáwill make final decisions regarding dress code issues that are disruptive to theáeducational environment, but not specifically noted in these guidelines. WMSádress code applies to students both during the school day and at any school sponsoredáactivities.

á

Tops:

Any shirt or blouse worn to school should completely cover the back, top of shoulders, and stomach. Tank tops for boys or girls are not acceptable if they are worn as a stand alone shirt. Any top that allows the midriff, cleavage, or undergarments to be exposed is unacceptable. The following items are unacceptable: see-through blouses or shirts, tube tops or croptops, halter-tops, and spaghetti straps. Students must leave heavy winter coats, long overcoats, trench coats, and other jackets in their lockers between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:22 p.m.

á

Pants, Shorts, Skirts:

All shorts and skirts must be appropriate length, no shorter than mid-thigh. A great way to determine if shorts are acceptable for school is to place arms at the sides and relax them. The finger tips naturally stop just about mid thigh. If the shorts are shorter than the finger tips, then they are not acceptable to wear to school. In addition, the shorts should have pockets and not be made out of some kind of stretchy material such as spandex. All pants, shorts, and skirts must be worn no lower than the hips; no sagging is permitted. All shorts must be worn at the hips so underwear cannot be seen. Sleepwear, such as pajama bottoms, are not acceptable at school.

á

Leggings:

Leggings are fashionable, trendy and can be worn at school if there is some kind of additional clothing covering the waist at least to mid thigh. Leggings for boys or girls will not be acceptable as a stand alone pant.

á

Footwear:

Appropriate shoes must be worn at all times. Slippers are unacceptable footwear.

á

Accessories:

Hats, caps, bandanas, hair picks, sunglasses, visors, and sweatbands must be placed in lockers during the school day. Backpacks and other book bags must also be stored in lockers between 8:00 a.m. and 3:22 p.m. For safety reasons, chains, dog collars, or sharp objects are not to be worn to school.

á

Offensive Dress:

Clothing or other personal items that are racist, sexist, or promote drugs/alcohol/ tobacco are not permitted. Clothing which contains violent, obscene, offensive, or suggestive words, images, or language is not permitted. Gang-related symbols worn, written, carried, displayed or communicated will not be tolerated. Any student wearing clothing that violates the dress code, disrupts the learning atmosphere or is deemed inappropriate may be asked to go home and return to school properly dressed. Students who do not follow the above expectations will be dealt with on an individual basis. Any school time missed due to correcting dress code violations may be required to be made up after school.

Cell Phones and Other Electronic Devices
  • Students will be permitted to carry phones/electronic devices with them during the school day.á
  • During instructional time these devices are not seen or heard, unless the teacher gives permission.
  • Outside of instructional time, electronic devices may be used as long as they are in compliance with the studentáCode of Conduct

    • Photographing, videotaping or audio recording any student, school district employee, volunteer, or bus/van driver, without prior consent of that person.
