Student Dress Code 2016-2017
All students are expected to dress appropriately for an educational environment. Any clothing or accessory that significantly interferes with, or disrupts the educational environment, are unacceptable.
For the 2016-2017 school year, Rio Tierra Jr. High has expanded the dress code policy to include clothing of all colors with the exception of red and blue. Red and blue clothing and accessories (including socks, belts, and shoes) are strictly prohibited.
Clothing, jewelry, and personal items with language or images that are vulgar, sexually suggestive, discriminatory, obscene or libelous, or that promote illegal or violent content, such as the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia, or clothing that contains threats, are prohibited.
Clothing should fit, be neat and clean, and conform to standards of safety, good taste, and decency.
Clothing that exposes cleavage, private parts, the midriff, or undergarments, or that is otherwise sexually provocative is prohibited. Jeans, pants, and shorts cannot have holes that show or exposes skin.
Hats and hoods are permitted outdoors as a sun protective measure. Hats and hoods should be removed once indoors and should conform to all dress code provisions. Bandanas of any kind are not permitted.
Footwear must adequately protect students’ feet. Close toed shoes are preferred. Sandals and other open toed footwear are permitted provided they have a substantial sole and back that straps around the heel. Flip flops, slides, or slippers are not permitted. Regardless of the shoe worn to school, students must wear closed toed athletic shoes for Physical Education class every day.
