Dress Code

As you start to shop for the upcoming school year, please keep these dress code guidelines in mind:

Dress Code

In keeping with the Cobb County Dress Code Policy, Simpson’s dress code reflects a minimum standard of grooming and dress that reflects the respect of appropriate dress for the learning environment.

· All undergarments must be covered at all times. Tank-tops, halter-tops, sleeveless shirts and spaghetti-strap-tops are not permitted unless a jacket is worn over the garment at all times. 

· No see-through garments are allowed without a t-shirt or blouse, which meets dress code. Shirts for which undergarments can be seen are considered see-through.

· Low cut shirts/blouses that are revealing and expose the chest area or cleavage may not be worn.  Shirts/blouses must be long enough not to expose skin and must cover your mid-section even when arms are raised.

·All shorts, skirts, and dresses must be finger-tip length.  Finger-tip length is defined as a student holding his/her arms by his/her side.  The student’s longest finger must still touch fabric.  No skin may be exposed above the finger-tip length. 

· Pants, (jeans, tights, leggings, yoga pants, jeggings, spandex, warm-up/sweat pants, etc.), may be worn as long as there is no skin exposed above the finger-tip length.  If you choose to wear leggings, jeggings, tights, yoga pants, spandex, etc., realize these are not stand alone pants and wear a top that is long enough to pass the raised arms test (no skin exposed in mid-section).

·Pants must be worn at the waist-line.  Baggy pants worn below the waistline (sagging) and pajama pants are not permitted.

·Bandanas, head coverings, sweet-headbands, and hats are not allowed.

·Clothing that displays, advertises, or promotes obscene slogans or signs, profanity, or any substance that is illegal for minors, such as beer, tobacco, etc. and clothing or ornamentation that advocates, promotes, or suggests illegal activity (including gang activity) is prohibited.

·Proper shoes must be worn at all times.  Slippers or house shoes are not permitted.
Failure to comply with the dress code will result in disciplinary actions ranging from student administrative conference to ISS.
