Dress Code ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE Descriptive Code: JCDB-R(1) ELEMENTARY DRESS CODE Date: 5/22/07 Every student enrolled in Douglas County Schools is expected to observe a standard of grooming and dress consistent with the level of formality of the school setting. Certain items of dress are not considered appropriate and therefore, are not acceptable, and could result in a child having to call parents at home or work to bring more appropriate clothing. Examples include (but are not limited to) the following: a. Hats, visors, hoods pulled up, sweat bands, skull caps, bandanas or other head garments including non-prescription sunglasses worn inside the building; b. Beach or shower shoes, bare feet, flip flops or rubber and/or metal cleats are not allowed in school or on buses; d. Clothing that shows the bare midriff, bare back or the bare shoulders. e. Tank tops; Tank tops are not permitted in 4th and 5thgrades. Shoulders must be covered. f. See-through or mesh clothing unless worn over other apparel; j. All pants which are not worn at the waist; m. Shorts, dresses and skirts that are too tight, too short, (five inches from the top of the kneecap) or not worn at the waist are not permitted; o. Holes or patches above the knee. Good taste and good judgment should be used by parents and students alike in the selection of school dress. Many “fads” in dress are not appropriate. The school administration reserves the right to determine if certain other items are too casual, too revealing or too distracting from the learning environment to be considered appropriate for school. Health and safety of all students will be taken into consideration when making decisions regarding appropriate/inappropriate attire, including the tucking of shirts. Full version is in the Student Handbook. *Leggings are NOT seen as pants. If leggings are worn to school outer garments are required to be worn and MUST meet all dress code requirements.

Early Check Out • We discourage parents from checking out their children after 2:00. Dismissal begins each day at 2:40. When a child is checked out before this time they are missing valuable instruction. Our goal is to provide your child with an excellent education in a safe environment. Approval for check out after 2:00 in case of an emergency may be obtained from Mrs. Joe or Dr. Abell. • To ensure the safety of every child, check out will not be permitted during dismissal. Dismissal occurs between 2:40 and 3:00. Party Invitations • Party invitations can not be passed out at school at any time or in any form. Homework • Students are expected to complete homework assignments as they are given. Fifty to sixty minutes is the approximate amount of time it should take to do this. In addition, Reading 20 minutes each night is also expected. If needed, students are given the opportunity to complete all missed assignments inside during recess.
