Meyzeek Middle School

Student Dress Code

We expect each student to dress appropriately so that our school environment remains focused on learning and free from distractions. Disruptive, provocative, revealing, profane vulgar, offensive, obscene or unsafe clothing is strictly prohibited.

  1. Students may wear shorts, skirts, and skorts to school. However, they must be no shorter than five inches above the crease in the back of the knee – no matter what is worn beneath them (i.e. tights, sweats, etc.).
    • Slits in skirts must meet the same 5” requirement.
    • This rule applies to Meyzeek team uniforms worn to school as well.
  2. Excessively tight outerwear is prohibited unless covered by another article of apparel that meets the criteria in item #1 above.
  3. Exposed midriffs, backs, or clothing with low-cut necklines are not allowed.
  4. No undergarments are to be seen. No sleep apparel (i.e. house shoes, pajamas, etc.) is to be worn to school.
  5. Tank tops can be worn only with a sleeved shirt beneath.
  6. Headwear and hats (other than traditional religious apparel), are to be stored in lockers during the school day.
    • Hair-bands are acceptable only if used to manage hair and not for decorative purposes.
    • Headbands (sweatband-style) are to be stored in lockers.
    • Hair brushes, hair picks, and combs are to be stored in lockers.
  7. No clothing, headwear, jewelry, or paraphernalia containing objectionable language or references to violence, sex, drugs, alcohol, gangs or clique affiliation of any sort is allowed.
  8. Outerwear (i.e. heavy/rain coats, scarves, gloves, etc.) designed for inclement weather (i.e. extreme cold, rain, snow, etc.) must be stored in lockers during the school day. Students may wear hoodies, sweatshirts, or sweaters.
  9. Students are expected to keep themselves well-groomed and neatly dressed at all times. Any form of dress, hairstyle/hair color, or accessory that is considered contrary to school hygiene or that is blatantly distracting or disruptive to the educational process is prohibited. The administration reserves the right to determine if student attire is inappropriate for school.
  10. Students who arrive at school not appropriately dressed will call home for a change of clothing or will be given clothing by the Youth Services Center.
