Dress Code

It is our strong belief that appropriate student dress has a positive impact on student learning, student behavior, and the overall school climate and morale. Both School Board policy (#3224-P) and all school student handbooks address the importance of appropriate dress. The high standards of expectation for student dress help send the message to students that school is an important place.

Mt. Erie has established guidelines for appropriate dress that support the learning climate, while also providing parents a great degree of discretion in helping their children choose the type of clothing to wear to school each day. Please review Mt. Erie’s dress code with your child: Low cut blouses, shirts, and sweaters and see-through clothing are not allowed

Students are expected to come to school appropriately dressed in neat, clean clothing. Extremes in fashions that detract from the teaching/learning process must be avoided. This attire could include short-shorts, bare midriffs, baggy, halter tops and other clothes that inappropriately expose the body. Clothing with labels or logos that support the use of drugs, alcohol, sex, and violence will not be allowed at any time. Hats may be worn outside, but are not allowed to be worn inside the building.

  • Tops and shirts must be long enough to stay tucked into pants or skirts
  • Tops with ultra-thin or "spaghetti" straps are not allowed
  • Hats may not be worn inside the school building
  • All skirts and shorts should be no shorter than 5 inches above the knee, or fingertip length
  • Athletic clothing worn during the school day/hours must comply with all school dress code standards
  • Pants should be worn securely at the waist
  • T-shirts may not display images or messages that have lewd, sexual, violent, drug, tobacco or alcohol-related messages
  • Gang-related items are prohibited

 

Identify Your Child’s Clothing !!!

Each year students lose many articles, such as coats, sweaters, shoes, and lunch boxes. Parents are urged to mark items with the child's name and to sew nametags on clothing as a means of identification. Both lunch boxes and sack lunches should have the child's first and last name as well as room number written on them. The school office maintains a lost and found area and both students and parents are welcome to check it for lost items.
