Staff Dress and Appearance


The attire worn by staff members conveys an important image to students and the general public. 


Certified staff, paraeducators and office staff should generally dress in business casual attire or as activity may suggest. 


The building principal may temporarily suspend all or a portion of the dress code when other factors support a lower dress expectation for school employees  (e.g., special “casual days”).


The appearance of professional staff members shall be appropriate to their assigned duties and indicative of their professional standing in the school and community.  To help meet that end, jeans of any color may not be worn except on Friday which is considered a “dress down” day.


Custodial, maintenance and transportation staff should dress in attire appropriate to the work they are performing. 


Staff may not wear visible body piercing jewelry, including tongue adornment, while at school or during a school function on or off school premises.  This prohibition applies to all parts of the body other than the ear.
