At Mountain View Elementary, we strive to be life-long learners. We aim for high academic success and growth by cultivating an equitable and safe learning environment where students of all abilities are valued.
Mountain View Elementary supports students’ rights to express themselves in the way they dress. Students will have the right to dress in accordance with their preferred identities, within the dress code requirements. All students who attend Mountain View Elementary are expected to respect the school community by dressing in accordance with the dress code. Student attire should promote school spirit, maintain the educational learning environment, and promote overall student, faculty, and staff safety. This policy is intended to provide guidance for students, staff, and parents.
1. Students must wear clothing, including both a top and bottom, or an appropriate one-piece outfit. Shirts and dresses must have fabric on the front (covering the abdomen), on the sides (under the arms), and on the back (covering the upper and lower back).
2. Shoes must always be worn and should be safe for the school environment. Slippers or flip flops shall not be worn, except for school activities approved by the principal.
3. See-through or mesh garments must not be worn without appropriate coverage underneath that meet the minimum requirements of the dress code.
4. Headgear including hats, hoodies, and caps are not allowed unless permitted for religious, medical, or other reasons by school administration. Permitted headgear must allow the student’s face to be visible and not interfere with line of sight to any student or staff member.
1. Clothing may not depict, imply, advertise, or advocate illegal, violent, or lewd conduct, weapons, and/or the use of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, or other controlled substances.
2. Clothing may not depict or imply pornography, nudity, or sexual acts.
3. Clothing may not display or imply vulgar, discriminatory, or obscene language or images.
4. Clothing may not state, imply, or depict hate speech/imagery targeting groups based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, or any other protected classification.
5. Sunglasses may not be worn inside the building.
6. Clothing and accessories that endanger student or staff safety may not be worn.
7. Apparel, jewelry, accessories, temporary tattoos or otherwise, or manner of grooming that, by virtue of its color, arrangement, trademark, or any other attribute, denotes membership in a gang that advocates illegal or disruptive behavior is prohibited.
The administration reserves the right to determine what constitutes required dress. Students who do not adhere to these guidelines will not be allowed to attend class. Parents will be called if clothing is not available and/or the student refuses the required dress code.
