Dress Code Enforcement

May 11, 2012

With the arrival of warm weather, it is an appropriate time to review the District 308 dress expectations for our students.  In the past couple of weeks, we have seen a considerable increase in the number of students who are in violation of the District 308 dress code.  We are asking parents to help their students to make appropriate decisions when selecting what to wear to school.

In the Oswego East High School Student Planner (pages 46 and 47), the dress codes states in part, "students must wear clothing covering their complete shoulder to mid-thigh area.  Clothing that is suggestive, extremely tight fitting, cleavage bearing or fails to cover the midriff is not allowed."

A few examples of clothing that does not adhere to the dress code, but are being worn to school by some students, includes but is not limited to: 
  • Short shorts
  • Skirts that are too tight and short
  • Tops that expose skin below the shoulder area
There will be a renewed effort to address violations in a more consistant and all encompassing manner.  Students who are in violation of the dress code will be referred to the deans' office and asked to change their clothes by their first block teacher.  Subsequent violations of the dress code will result in additional disciplinary consequences.  It also may be necessary for parents to bring proper attire to school for their student.  

Thank you for your help and support with adherence to the district's student dress expectations.
