Dress Code



Thank you in advance for helping our students dress for success! We want to thank the amazing level of feedback we received about our school dress code, and we listened to students, parents, and staff to help make changes for the upcoming school year. The dress code below can be found in our Student Handbook on our school website in addition to within our Student Agendas. Please contact the school office with any questions about our dress code, and we’re excited to help our students get ready for the new school year!


Students are required to meet the expectations within the Cobb County Board of Education (JCDB-R) Student Dress Code Policy and the school expectations below. All students of the Cobb County School District are encouraged to observe a standard of grooming and dress consistent with the level of formality of the school situation. 


1. All students of the Cobb County School District shall be required to maintain the level of personal hygiene necessary to ensure a healthy school environment and to refrain from any mode of dress that proves to contribute to any disruption of school functions. 

2. Administrators and teachers shall enforce the dress code rule, and the principal or his designee shall be the final judge as to the appropriateness, neatness, and cleanliness of the apparel, or whether apparel is disruptive, destructive, or in violation of the dress code. 

3. All students shall maintain an acceptable standard of dress. 


The minimum standard of dress for students shall be as follows: 

a. Shoes shall be worn. Slippers may not be worn. 

b. The 7 “B” areas/items must be appropriately covered at all times: backs, bellies, boxers, bras, breasts, briefs, and butts. 

c. Pajama pants may not be worn. 

d. Bandanas, bonnets, caps, do-rags, hats, hoods, and other informal headgear are not to be worn in the school building during the school day unless there is a special activity during which they are deemed appropriate by the school administration. A more formal headdress is permissible with administrator approval. A minor infraction may be earned for any violation. 

e. Clothing or ornamentation displaying or advertising substances illegal for minors is prohibited. Suggestive phrases, designs, markings, or profanities are also prohibited. 

f. Clothing or ornamentation advocating, promoting, or suggesting illegal activity is also prohibited. 


4. Proper dress is an important component for sustaining the formality of the school setting, and we solicit and appreciate your support and cooperation. Parents or students who have specific questions about garments’ appropriateness should consult the local school administration before students wear the garments to school. Students who are improperly dressed will NOT be allowed to attend class, and assignment to ISS (In-School Suspension) will be the alternate learning environment. 


Violators of the dress code will be placed in isolation until proper clothing is obtained or for the remainder of the school day. Administrative consequences for dress code violations (new start each quarter): 

Offense 1: Warning

Offense 2: Administrative Detention (discipline referral) 

Offense 3: In-School Suspension/ISS (discipline referral) 


Students will be referred to the front office for all dress code violations and will be offered appropriate clothing to return to their regular schedules. Any other items that may create a disruption to learning, including blankets, stuffed animals, and toys may be confiscated.
