Student ATTIRE

Mandatory Standard Student Attire (SSA) is in place at Glen Taylor Elementary School and is as follows:

 

The basic colors of khaki, navy, and white will be required at all Standard Student Attire schools.  All items of clothing must be in solid colors only with no pattern, no words, and no brand logos.  Glen C. Taylor Elementary School will have burgundy and hunter green as optional colors. All types of sweatshirts are allowed (including non-hooded, pullover hoodies, and zippered sweatshirts), but all types must be in Standard Student Attire basic/optional solid colors at all times.

 

Under CCSD Regulation 5131(V)(D), “the school logo may only include the school name and/or school mascot.  No other names or symbols related to school athletic teams, school clubs/activities, charitable organizations, or similar groups/organizations should be on the clothing.”  In addition, “colors and styles of outerwear, such as jackets and coats, are not required to meet the color/style specifications of Standard Student Attire.”

Violations of the Mandatory Standard Student Attire (SSA) guidelines will result in a logical progression of discipline.

 

First Violation: The school personnel will conference with the student and provide them the opportunity to change into Standard Student Attire. The school will send home the SSA policy and the consequences of noncompliance. Parent(s)/guardian(s) and students will understand that this first violation serves as a warning. 

 

Second Violation: The school personnel will make a phone call to the parent(s)/guardian(s) to explain that their child is not in compliance with the SSA and they can bring in a change of clothes for their child or the school can provide clean clothing to have the student be in compliance with the SSA.

Third Violation: The third time a student is sent to the office for noncompliance with the SSA, the parent(s)/guardian(s) will be contacted and a Required Parent Conference (RPC) with an administrator will be scheduled to discuss continued noncompliance with school rules regarding SSA. If the parent(s)/guardian(s) indicates at the conference that their student will not comply with SSA, the school administrator must notify the parent that their student will be placed on an administrator transfer to an elementary that does not implement the mandatory SSA policy. Parent(s)/guardian(s) will be made aware that they have the right to request a zone variance. 
 

CCSD Regulation 5131 states, “The Clark County School District reserves the right to promote that the dress and grooming of students are within the limits of generally accepted community standards. Students shall be required to show proper attention to personal cleanliness. Students have a responsibility to dress in alignment with the Clark County School District dress and appearance guidelines. Student’s dress, personal appearance, and conduct are required to be of such character as not to disrupt or detract from the educational environment of the school. Any style which tends to diminish instructional effectiveness or discipline control by teachers is not acceptable. The school administration shall have the right to designate which types of dress, fashion, fads, or appearance disrupt or detract from the educational program and maybe a potential safety hazard. The principal shall retain the authority to grant exceptions for spirit days, special event dress days, and schoolwide free dress days. On those CCSD/school-sanctioned exception days, schools will notify the students and parents/guardians of the unique dress provisions. 

Students must adhere to the following guidelines regarding school dress:

 

  1. Require the wearing of shoes with soles. House slippers and shoes with wheels are not permitted. 

  2. All clothing must be sufficient to conceal any and all undergarments. No skin will show between the bottom of the shirt/blouse and top of pants or skirts at any time. All sleeveless shirts must have straps at least three inches wide. Prohibited tops include, but are not limited to, crop tops, tank tops, strapless, low-cut clothing, clothing with slits, or tops and outfits that provide minimum coverage. 

  3. Require that all shorts, skorts, skirts, and jumpers/dresses must be at fingertip length. 

  4. All jeans, pants, and trousers must be secured at the waist level. Sagging is strictly prohibited. Jeans, pants, and trousers are not to have rips or tears that expose undergarments and/or are located mid-thigh or higher. 

  5. Headgear (hats, hoods, caps, bandanas, hair grooming aids, etc.) is not permitted on campus except for designated school-approved uniforms, special events, authorized athletic practices, documented medical conditions, bona fide religious reasons, or CCSD/school-sanctioned activities. 

  6. Slogans or advertising on clothing, jewelry, buttons, and/or accessories which by their controversial, discriminatory, profane, and/or obscene nature disrupt the educational setting are prohibited. 

  7. Any clothing, jewelry, buttons, and/or accessories that promote illegal or violent conduct, or affiliation with groups that promote illegal or violent conduct such as, but not limited to, the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia, or clothing that contains threats are prohibited. 

  8. Spiked or studded clothing, jewelry, and/or accessories are prohibited. 

  9. Outerwear such as coats, mittens, and scarves must be removed upon entering the classrooms/buildings. Administrators, teachers, R-5131 (page 3), and staff may use their discretion as appropriate based on the temperature in the facility. 

  10. The Basic Dress Code provisions [Section IV(A)(1-9)], and if adopted by the school, Standard Student Attire provisions [Section V(D)], shall be included in the student/parent notifications.
