Avoid tight-fitting or low-cut tops
Sleeveless shirts/ tank-tops are never permitted
Tight jeans, or pants with holes, tears or rips are not appropriate
Shorts and skirts may be no shorter than two inches above the knee
Leggings worn as pants or leggings worn with skirts that are shorter than 2-inches above the knee are not appropriate (Leggings may only be worn with skirts or dresses of the appropriate listed length)
Sheer skirts/dresses that are long in length with a solid skirt underneath that is more than two inches above the knee are not appropriate
All logos, graphics, words/phrases or other writing must be appropriate for a Christian school environment, in other words, carry positive messages and be in line with Biblical standards. Certain graphics, including gargoyles, skulls, wizards, vampires, and other graphics of this nature are not appropriate for school.
Under garments should never be visible
Jewelry is not permitted
