NON-UNIFORM DAYS (Dress Down)

 

During the school year there will be times when students will be allowed to wear non-school uniform clothing. During casual dress days students may wear jeans, t-shirts, knee length shorts, skorts or skirts. T-shirts must meet or pass the waist, not be sheer and must not have obscene, vulgar or offensive language or imagery. Shorts and skirts must coincide with the uniform code length requirement. During events that require students to dress up, not casual, students may wear pants (other than uniform) and skirts or dresses that come at least to the knees. Students will be informed of the type of dress required for upcoming events. If students do not have “dressy” clothing the school uniform in whole or in part (such as the pants) will suffice. Clothing may not be skin tight nor may the tops be revealing. Tutus/Skater Skirts worn with or without leggings is NOT allowed.

 

IMPORTANT: The administration will deem the appropriateness of student appearance, grooming and the moderate wearing of jewelry. Students are to remain in full uniform while on the Detroit Service Learning Academy Campus.

Note: Attendance at Public School Academies is voluntary; therefore, it is presumed that parents/guardians who send their children to a charter school have consented to the published rules about personal appearance and grooming. Neatness and attractiveness should be attributes the students strive to exhibit in their daily appearance.
