Mountain View School District Dress Code

In an effort to provide a safe and orderly school environment for our students and in response to a desire to keep district schools free from the threats or harmful influence of any groups or gangs which advocate substance abuse, violence, or disruptive behavior, the following list of prohibited items will be implemented at all our schools.

Parents have the primary responsibility to see that students are properly attired for school.  School district personnel have the responsibility of maintaining proper and appropriate conditions conducive to learning.  We are asking your cooperation regarding conformity to the following dress guidelines:

  1. Shoes must be worn and tied at all times.  Sandals must be closed toe with an enclosed heel.  Thongs and backless shoes are not acceptable.
  2. Clothing, jewelry and personal items (backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles, etc.) shall be free of writing, pictures or any other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, which bear drug, alcohol or tobacco company advertising, promotions and likenesses, or which advocate racial, ethnic or religious prejudice.
  3. Hats, caps and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors.  Sun protective clothing, including hats, may be worn outside in accordance with individual school site policies. (See site principal)
  4. Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times.  See-through or fish-net fabrics, halter tops, spaghetti straps less than 1 inch wide, off-the-shoulder or low-cut tops, bare midriffs and skirts or shorts, shorter than mid-thigh are prohibited.
  5. Earrings or other jewelry, which may present a safety hazard, are not suitable for school wear.
  6. Gang attire of any kind is strictly prohibited.  Clothing such as baggy or oversized pants, plain white T-shirts, or shorts cut below the knees are not appropriate.
