DRESS CODE/GROOMING REMINDER!
The San Mateo Union High School District recognizes that the type of clothing, jewelry, personal items, and style of hair are a matter of personal choice.  Three primary factors influence the District’s expectations for what is acceptable.  Students are expected to dress in a manner which is not disruptive to the learning process, is safe, and does not construe gang affiliation.  Violations will result in a change of clothing.  Students may be required to go home and parents will be notified.  Repeated violations will result in disciplinary actions. Listed below are examples of what the school district considers inappropriate.  This list is representative but not all-inclusive.

  • Suggestive, revealing, or transparent attire that could divert attention from the learning process or may contribute to inappropriate conduct. (Examples:  front or back cleavage exposure, short skirts/shorts/high-slit skirts, spaghetti straps, halter or strapless clothing.)
  • Clothing that does not cover undergarments completely (Examples:  baggy or low cut pants or tops that expose undergarments.  Straps should be one inch.)
  • Clothing that does not cover midriff (Examples:  shirts that rise and expose skin around the waist/back, or cropped tops.)
  • Clothing that promotes obscenity, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, sex, or violence
  • Clothing that demeans others with regard to gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
  • Clothing that indicates gang involvement as determined by the school administration and based on consultation with the local law enforcement agency (examples:  Hair nets, do-rags)
  • Clothing, jewelry or accessories which are potentially dangerous (Example:  spiked rings, necklaces, or bracelets, or sharp studs on clothing.)
  • Clothing should be free of writing, pictures, insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane
  • Being barefoot.

Consequences:

  • 1st Offense:  warning, parent notified, change of clothes
  • 2nd Offense:  warning, parent notified, change of clothes, 2 hour detention
  • 3rd Offense:  in-house suspension for defiance, parent notified
