2023-2024 School Year Dress Code

Hello Mustangs,

● Per the Lancaster County School Board approval, all middle schools within the district do not require school uniforms. We do still have a dress code that must be followed. Please keep this information in mind while shopping for school clothes.

 ○ No offensive or inappropriate images, advertisements, or sayings should appear on clothing.

○ All Shirts must have sleeves.

○ Shorts should be mid-thigh or lower.

○ Belly shirts or shirts where the midriff is exposed should not be worn at school. (If a student raises their arms above their heads, their midriff should not show)

○ Students may wear pants or shorts but there can be no holes above the knee.

○ If your child has Physical Education Class, they are expected to bring the appropriate shoes for physical participation in the form of tennis shoes or sneakers.

○ Slides and Flip-Flops are not appropriate for school.

○ Hoods, hats, and other head coverings are not to be on a student's head inside of the school building. This is for security purposes so that we are able to identify all persons.

○ Leggings, yoga pants, or shorts of similar make are not to be worn unless they are under a skirt.

○ Pants must be worn at the waist

○ Bandanas should not be worn or shown

○ Pajamas and bedroom shoes and similar types of clothing are not allowed at school.
