Dress Code

Dress Code

Student's personal dress and grooming are determined by the student and parent provided that the student's dress and grooming are not potentially disruptive to the learning environment. The Brier Dress Code is developed as a guide to parents, students, and staff.

Students are asked to dress appropriately for weather so that they may participate in outdoor activities, including PE and recess. All clothing should fit appropriately minimizing exposure of flesh and underwear (Pants should not sag; shorts and skirts should be appropriate length; and shirts such as halter tops, spaghettis straps, tube tops, and cut-off shirts are not appropriate). Hats are not allowed in school buildings, except on the playground.Make-up should not be brought to school, and the wearing of make-up is discouraged. Unnatural hair dyes (red, green, blue, etc.) can be distracting and are strongly discouraged. Clothing should avoid inappropriate advertising or offensive messages (alcohol, tobacco, drugs, profanity, violence, etc).

Exemptions may be made for special school-sponsored days throughout the year.

School staff will use these guidelines to assist in making judgments about appropriate dress. If the student's dress or grooming is objectionable under these provisions, a staff member and/or the principal will ask the student to make appropriate corrections. If the student refuses, the principal will notify the parent and ask that person to make the necessary correction. If the student continues to refuse, the principal will take appropriate corrective action. All students will be accorded due process safeguards before any corrective action may be taken.
