Student Dress Code

All students are expected to dress appropriately for an educational environment.  Any clothing items or accessories that significantly interfere with, or disrupt the educational environment, are unacceptable. 
  • NO PREDOMINANTLY RED OR BLUE CLOTHING OR ACCESSORIES:
    • In recent years, Rio Tierra Junior High expanded the dress code policy to include clothing of all colors with the exception of red and blue.  Red and blue clothing and accessories (including but not limited to hats, socks, belts, and shoes) are strictly prohibited.
  • DRESS MUST BE APPROPRIATE FOR SCHOOL:
    • Absolutely no "distressed" jeans, pants, skirts, and shorts will be allowed (including but not limited to holes, tears, shreds, frays, or patches).
    • Clothing that exposes cleavage, private parts, the midriff, or undergarments, or that is otherwise sexually provocative is prohibited.
    • Clothing, jewelry, and personal items with language or images that are vulgar, sexually suggestive, discriminatory, obscene or libelous, or that promote illegal or violent content, such as the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia, or clothing that contains threats, are prohibited.
    • Pajamas, sleep wear, and blankets are not to be worn at school.
    • Clothing should fit, be neat and clean, and conform to standards of safety, good taste, and decency.
  • REMOVAL OF HATS AND HOODS:
    • Hats and Hoods are permitted outdoors as a weather-protective measure.  Hats and hoods must be removed once indoors and should conform to all dress code provisions.  Bandannas of any kind are not permitted.
  • FOOTWEAR:
    • Footwear must adequately protect students’ feet.  Closed toed shoes are preferred.  Sandals and other open toed footwear are permitted provided they have a substantial sole and back that straps around the heel.  Flip flops, slides, or slippers are not permitted.  Regardless of the shoe worn to school, students must wear closed toed athletic shoes for Physical Education class every day.
