Lexington One has established a basic structure for determining appropriate dress standards for students. Clothing should not be so immodest or inappropriate to the school setting as to disrupt the educational process. Therefore, the district will not permit clothing deemed distracting, revealing, overly suggestive or otherwise disruptive. This includes (but is not limited to) bare midriffs, halter/tank tops, spaghetti straps, and see-through shirts, tops or blouses.
The district will not permit clothing that displays vulgar, obscene or otherwise inappropriate symbols, language or wording.
- The district will not permit clothing or accessories (i.e., book bags, jewelry, hats, etc.) that display or make reference to alcohol, tobacco or illegal substances.
- Students may not wear or display gang attire, colors or symbols on clothing or accessories.
- Under most conditions, students may not wear head coverings while on campus or attending school-sponsored events/activities. Some classes require that students wear safety hats. Religious headgear is allowed.
- Students must wear proper shoes at all times.
- Students may wear special dress or costumes for specific events or special occasions when approved by the principal. During the regular school day, students’ athletic attire such as tennis, track, cheerleading outfits, etc. must conform to all other regulations of the dress code.
- Students may not wear accessories/clothing that could pose a safety threat including heavy chains, fish hooks, multi-finger rings, studded bracelets or collars, nose- or lip-to-ear chains, etc. The district does not allow unusual body piercings that disrupt the order of school or that disturbs the learning environment.
- Students may not wear overly tight or shorter than fingertip, or mid-thigh length shorts, skirts, skorts or dresses. The district does not allow bike shorts unless worn under another pair of shorts.
- Students must wear pants at the natural waistline. Undergarments should not show and should not be worn outside of clothing.
School administrators make the final judgment on appropriateness of any student’s dress and reserve the right to prohibit any clothing/accessory disruptive to their school.
