• Dress Code (Reviewed/Updated by the CCSD School Board, May 6, 2021)

    1. Purpose: The courts, state, and federal laws, as well as Cache County School District and district policies require an atmosphere at school any school function which provides for a safe, orderly, and disruption-free environment. The following dress code policy has been designed to support such an environment. 
    2. There appears to be a close relationship between good dress and grooming habits, good work and study habits, and proper school behavior.  In the judgment of staff and/or administration, any clothing, hair style, or personal adornment that poses a safety hazard or causes a disruption within the school or any school function, appropriate corrective action will be taken.
    3.  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.

     

     

    1. 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.
    2. Corrective actions may include but are not limited to:
      1. Students will be required to change clothes, turn clothing article inside out, call home for a change of clothing to be brought to the school, or wear a school-designated article of clothing loaned by the school.
      2. Any item which violates the dress code may be confiscated and later returned to the student or parent by the school administration.
      3. Subsequent violations of the dress code may result in a parent conference and/or student detention and/or suspension.
    3. The Cache County School District has established the following guidelines to aid parents and students in selecting proper school attire:
