General dress code guidelines from Shelby County Schools are as follows:
Head apparel (such as hoods, hat, etc.) must not be worn inside the school building, except for religious or medical reasons (see Individual Exemptions from Certain Dress Code Requirements or from Standardized Dress/Uniforms).
Footwear is required and must be safe and appropriate for indoor or outdoor physical activity.
Clothing or accessories may not display offensive, vulgar language or images, nor promote inappropriate and/or illegal products such as alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs.
For students in Grades 3-5, “short shorts”, mini-skirts, and skin-tight outer material such as spandex are inappropriate attire. No shorts or skirts shorter than four (4) inches above the knee are allowed.
Shirts, blouses, and dresses must completely cover the abdomen, back, and shoulders. Shirts or tops must be no longer than wrist-length and must cover the waistband of pants, shorts, or skirts with no midriff visible.
Waist-length and appropriately sized sweaters, sweatshirts, and lightweight jackets can be worn inside school for warmth. The school administration reserves the right to determine whether a student's attire and appearance are within the limits of decency, modesty, and safety. In matters of opinion, the judgment of the Principal/designee shall prevail. The Principal may allow exceptions for school-wide programs or special classroom activities. The school administration will administer appropriate consequences for policy infractions.
