  1. State law requires that footwear be worn at all times
  2. Students should wear appropriate, non-distracting clean clothing.
  3. Students must wear an appropriate shirt at all times. (Examples of inappropriate shirts are: white tee shirts, high socks with long shorts, sleeveless undershirts, tube-tops, see-through tops, backless tops, strapless tops, low-cut etc.)
  4. Clothing that advertises or promotes alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gangs, violence, or other inappropriate activity is not acceptable. [Gang attire will be defined by the current LAUSD guidelines.]

Violation of the dress code will result in requiring the  student to change the inappropriate attire before continuing the school  day. Refusal to comply will result in a day of suspension. Additional  school consequences will be given to repeat offenders.
