    habits, good work and study habits, and proper school behavior. In the

    within the school or any school function, appropriate corrective

    action will be taken.


    C. Disruption is defined as, but not limited to, reactions by other individuals to

    the clothing or adornment, which causes the teacher/administrator to lose the

    attention of the students, to modify or cease instructional activities, or to deal

    with the student confrontations or complaints.


    D. Responsibilities: Adherence to dress and grooming standards is the

    responsibility of the student and his/her parents/guardians. Enforcement of

    the school’s dress code and standards is the responsibility of the school

    administration, faculty, and staff. Students who choose not to comply with

    the staff member’s corrective request may be referred to school

    administration for corrective action.


    E. Corrective actions may include but are not limited to:

    a. Students will be required to change clothes, turn clothing articles

    returned to the student or parent by the school administration.

    conference and/or student detention and/or suspension.


    F. The Cache County School District has established the following guidelines

    to aid parents and students in selecting proper school attire:

    safety is a factor, more stringent standards may be applied.

    coverings (sweatshirt hoods) shall not be worn or displayed inside school

    facilities during school hours.

    Metal accessories that present a hazard to the health or safety of the

    wearer or others are prohibited on school grounds.

    For safety purposes, no backpacks are allowed in classrooms throughout

    the day.

    Clothing, jewelry, personal items (backpacks/bags, binders, bandannas,

    etc.), and skin shall be free of writing, pictures, symbols, insignia, or

    c. Advocate racial, ethnic, or religious prejudice

    d. Represent or give evidence to gang membership or affiliation


    Any clothing in question will be scrutinized and left to administration to determine

    appropriateness and whether it shall be allowed. This dress code is for the protection

    and preservation of the teaching and learning environment and for the safety of all

    students, staff members, and visitors. Please remember that the dress code policy

    applies to all students whether attending school or any school function (as participant

    or member of the audience), regardless of time or place.
