Dress Code



Juarez Elementary respects students’ rights to express themselves in the way they dress.  All students are also expected to respect the school community by dressing appropriately for a K-5 educational environment.  Student attire should facilitate participation in learning as well as the health and safety of students and the adults who supervise them.  This policy is intended to guide staff and parents.

Children must wear clothing and shoes that are safe, comfortable, and appropriate for classroom and playground activities. Clothing and/or shoes that may hinder movement or endanger safety are not to be worn at school. Our daily recess times as well as our PE schedule require shoes that children can run in comfortably.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Clothing must cover areas from one armpit across to the other armpit, down to approximately 3 to 4 inches in length on the upper thighs.  Tops must have shoulder straps.  Rips or tears in clothing should be lower than 3 to 4 inches in length.

  • Shoes must be worn at all times and should be safe for the school environment (pajamas, bedroom shoes, or slippers shall not be worn, except for school activities approved by the principal).

  • Since students work on the computer daily, artificial nails must not interfere with the student's ability to finish their work.

  • See-through or mesh garments must not be worn without appropriate coverage underneath that meets the minimum requirements of the dress code.

The principal may approve exceptions to the dress code for unusual situations or for specific events, such as spirit days.
