Dress Code

DRESS CODE

At Muirlands Middle School, we strive to help students grow as learners and as citizens. The Muirlands Dress Code encourages students to focus on learning, maintain school and age-appropriate attire, and be safe as they express their individuality appropriately. This dress code applies equally to all students. Attire should protect the health and safety of all students.

Dress Code:

  • Student attire should not advertise or advocate the use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, weapons, or gang affiliation. This also applies to garments with writing or pictures that are obscene, suggestive, sexual, mean-spirited, or violent.
  • Half-shirts, crop tops, low necklines, straps less than 2", and sleeveless tops with large armholes are not to be worn.
  • Shirts must be long enough to touch pants or shorts/skirt.
  • Clothing must cover undergarments.
  • Shorts must have a 3-inch inseam.
  • Pants must not have holes/rips above the 3-inch inseam.

The following are not allowed at school:

  • Pants or shorts worn below the hips.
  • See-through clothing that exposes undergarments.
  • Flip Flops of any kind.
  • Pajamas, blankets, or slippers.
  • Chewing gum and sunflower seeds.

When a student's attire does not meet the dress code, he/she/they will be asked to remedy the issue in one of the following ways: The student will be asked to:

  • Change into appropriate alternative clothing from their PE locker
  • Change into clothes provided by the office
  • Call home from the office to request a change of clothes

Muirlands staff will address non-compliance with the dress code respectfully and professionally. Students who repeatedly make clothing choices that do not adhere to the dress code will face consequences for defiance.
