Dress and Grooming The Cheboygan Area Schools encourage good grooming and neatness in appearance. This adds to a good educational environment and shows pride and respect for school. The following apply:
1. Student appearance and clothes should be neat and clean. 2. Personal body care such as brushing teeth daily, showering, and washing hair regularly contributes to both the hygiene and grooming of a student. 3. The overall appearance of a student should not disrupt the educational process.
Dress Code It is expected that students attend school wearing clothing that is appropriate, safe, and does not distract from the educational process. The following are the dress code guidelines that students are expected to follow:
• Absolutely no alcohol, tobacco, or drug advertising. No lewd or suggestive wording or clothing. • Shoes must be worn. Shoes with wheels are not permitted. • Sleeveless apparel such as tank tops, cut-off sweatshirts or blouses. • No pajama pants. All pants must be worn at the waistline. • Clothing should be free of holes, major rips or tears. • Undergarments must not be visible. Overly tight, revealing or see-through clothing is not permitted. • Coats, windbreakers, jackets, hats and other outdoor apparel may not be worn in the building. • All shorts, pants, skirts and dresses must be hemmed with NO FRINGES. • No hats, bandanas, visors, or scarves to be worn on the head. • All shorts, skirts and dresses must extend below the fingertips of the student when standing with arms extended downward, or within four (4) inches of the knee. • Leggings must be covered with appropriate length shorts, pants, skirts, or dresses.
When enforcing the dress code, administrative discretion will be used. If you are unsure about acceptable clothing, you may bring it to the office before your child wears it to school. It is also recommended that students keep a set of clean clothes in their backpack in case of unforeseen circumstances.
So Many Activities, So Little Time.....
Students who are involved in extracurricular activities--from chess club to cheerleading to chorus -- tend to have higher self-esteem and stronger connections to school.
