Special Announcement - Dress Code

September 9, 2022

Dear Holcomb 4th – 6th Grade Families,

At last night’s Holcomb R-III School Board meeting, the Board of Education asked that I clearly explain the expectations of the dress code to the 4th – 6th grade building.  This dress code was adopted during the July 14th board meeting.  Below you will find the Code of Dress that is published on page 26 of the Holcomb R-III School Handbook.

 

CODE OF DRESS

Student appearance should be such that it will not disrupt the educational process.  The responsibility of determining what constitutes a dress/appearance distraction rests within the administration and/or professional staff.  

1. Dress and grooming should be appropriate for the time, place, and purpose. 

2. Dress and grooming should meet basic social expectations of society and the local community. 

3. Dress and grooming should not create undue distraction. 

4. Caps, hats, hoods, visors can be worn outside. They are not to be worn inside the building except on activity days.  

5. Hair must be kept clean, neat, and from covering the eyes. 

6. Shorts and skirts must be at least as long as the student’s mid-thigh and free of holes above finger-tip length. A student wearing clothing deemed unacceptable will be given appropriate clothing provided by the school or may have appropriate clothing brought to school from home.  

7. Midriff, mesh garments, muscle shirts, shirts with cut-off sleeves (except during PE) or spaghetti strap shirts are not to be worn by students. Shirts must have at least a 2 inch sleeve. 

8. Pants must be worn around the waist with no underwear visible, and pants with holes must be deemed acceptable by teachers and principal. 

9. No piercing permitted that is disruptive to the learning environment or creates a safety hazard to the student or other students. No septics, eyebrow rings, or lip rings are permitted. The student may be required to remove such items while at school. Students may not have any jewelry, including earrings, tongue rings, or other such items during Physical Education. 

10. No pajama pants or house shoes 

11. Body fitting pants including, but not limited to, leggings, compression tights, and yoga pants can only be worn with a shirt that fully covers the backside. 

12. Clothing items which display alcohol, tobacco, drugs, sex symbols, or violence by words, pictures, or symbols are inappropriate for school wear. 

The guidelines have been established in the matter of appropriate dress and appearance to provide for a student’s health and safety while attending school. Any student found to be in violation of these dress guidelines may be required to notify parents and make necessary changes. Repeat offenders may receive disciplinary action. 

We will begin enforcing this dress code on Tuesday, September 13, 2022.  The purpose behind this dress code enforcement is to help prepare our 4th – 6th grade students for their transition to the high school building.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Emily Heuring

Holcomb Elementary Principal
